Hello again,
Very glad to talk things over with you further.
I would not be too concerned, like all small animal vet I have handled dogs infected with this virus many times and I have never had any concerns about it. While there are very rare situations where people have been known to be carriers I have never heard of one episode when a human became symptomatic.
