Hey so I just had strep throat and should I wash all my sheets like are they contagious to my family if they use the same blanket I used when I was sick.

In brief: Strep

Strep is fairly contagious generally spread by droplets but can contaminate towels and sheets.
Good hygiene is the best prevention so washing sheets and blankets would be prudent
