A contractor came with a open bleeding wound on hand. He handshake with me and also touched everywhere in my house. I don't know his health status. Should I worry of any contagious disease? Do I need any cleaning of the house? I am 36w pregnant.

In brief: Bleeding worker

Ask him his HIV status and hepatitis status.
Clean areas with Chlorox. Unless you have cuts on hands. Wear gloves. Discuss with your Dr.
