In brief: Yes & no
The transmission of pinworms requires the ingestion of pinworm eggs.
These quite easily end up on the fingers of someone changing the bed linen or sharing a bed with an infected person who sheds them. They are not transmitted from blood, saliva or a sneeze, like many other agents.
