In brief: Not unless U have it
Chicken pox can be spread by an active case by airborn droplets starting before the first spots, or the debris from broken blisters.
It is passed by active cases(child or adult), not by people who come in contact with them.Routein handwashing should be common to the workplace to prevent you from passing or gaining germs from your workplace & taking them back & forth.
