    Impetigo can be contagious if you touch the infected area or something that has. I highly doubt with the little interaction that you state that you will catch it. But in the unlikely chance that you did it is not harmful unless mistreated. You would just have to go to your doctor and get the treatment, which the medication makes it no longer contagious after 24 hours and will begin to heal in a few days

    Impetigo mainly infects infants and children. Unless you're doing business with infants or toddlers....

    How do you know they had impetigo, and not something else?
