In brief: Not contagious

You do not need to tell them if you prefer not to.
However , of you wish to tell them you can provide them with info from lupus support group so they are educated and do not avoid you.

In brief: Your choice

Just as with any personal information, you should consider who you want to tell, and why you want them to know.
