Can You Get Infected Hugging Someone That Has Cdiff

Answer

Possibly, yes, you can get infected with C-Diff depending on cleanliness. C-diff can be passed through stool. If the person with C-diff is not fastidious about keeping their hands, clothes, etc. clean, then it can easily be passed on through touch. This is why is can run rampant in hospitals and senior facilities.
