In brief: Slim to none

The whole purpose of isolation procedures is to ensure that someone with a potentially contagious disorder does not expose others.
Hospitals are quite atuned to this problem and have set policies to make sure that people entering and leaving a room do not carry dangerous infectious agents with them.
