    Salmonella can indeed be spread from person to person. This usually happens through the fecal-oral route, which means the bacteria are transmitted when microscopic particles of feces containing Salmonella come into contact with the mouth of another person. This can occur through direct contact with an infected person, such as shaking hands or sharing utensils, or indirectly through contaminated surfaces, food, or water. Additionally, handling infected animals, particularly reptiles like turtles and lizards, can also lead to Salmonella transmission. It’s important to practice good hygiene, such as washing hands thoroughly with soap and water, especially after using the bathroom, handling animals, or preparing food, to reduce the risk of spreading Salmonella to others.
