In brief: Spread by contact

Strep throat spreads by contact with saliva from the infected person.
Avoiding sharing of food or beverages and other close contact until the infected person has been treated with antibiotics for at least 24 hours is wise. If you get a sore throat or fever within a week of contact then call your doctor. Good luck!
