Dear customer,

Thank you for your reply.

No, you cannot get infected with HIV in this way. There was no exchange of fluids and therefore you can safely relax. You cannot catch HIV because of this incident. You can safely relax and move on with your life. Please don't worry about this. HIV does not survive in the environment for more than a minute or two.
