In brief: None, but...

Strep throat is only mildly contagious, and once you've been diagnosed and hopefully treatment has begun, risk of transmission is minimal.
Be sure you do get it treated, as there's a danger to the kidneys later and even more serious to the heart. Rheumatic fever is a devastating disease preventable by treating strep throat.
