Confusing post: Chickenpox is a highly contagious virus and passes easily through airborne droplets (cough) or direct contact with saliva or sore debris. The presence of a vulnerable person in the same room for 30 min is enough exposure to pass it. Simply wiping down a toilet seat with sanitizer will avoid transfer of any contact germs. Incubation is 10-21 days I would expect any vulnerable person to get it.
