In brief: Not easily passed
Anthrax is passed thru:contact of the spores on the skin producing a skin ulcer, inhalation of spores into the lung producing inhalation anthrax; ingestion of spore containing food producing throat/gi anthrax.
It is not spread from on person to another.Anthrax is notorius as a bioterrorism agent (2001), anthrax is not going to go around like a flu.

In brief: Not
Anthrax is not contagious between humans.
It is not passed by coughing or sneezing. Infection can occur by handling animals or their by- products. People at higher risk include veterinarians, farm workers & researchers working with animals. There is a possibility of facing weaponized anthrax in some military deployment scenarios.
