Yes it is contagious...very contagious. It is passed by coughing, sneezing or (like my DH), letting your little one put his hands in your mouth!! I could die when I see him doing that! The best protection is to wash, wash, wash those hands before handling your little one! It also helps if you can get everyone to stop grabbing your child's hands! I don't know why people feel that is okay! The first thing my son does is put his hands in his mouth afterwards! Of course, wash their toys often, especially if another child plays with them!

Take care!
