Jeff: I have had a couple worker who suffers from shingles from time to time. Are shingles contagious??
Megan: Shingles is a type of virus that can pass to anyone who isn’t immune to chickenpox. The person will contact chickenpox not shingles usually only if there has been direct contact with the open sores of shingles. Until the shingles have scanned over you are contagious to anyone who hasn’t had the chickenpox. Hope that helps.
