    Yes, an E. coli infection can be contagious. E. coli bacteria can spread from person to person through various means, including contaminated food or water, close contact with an infected person, or contact with surfaces or objects contaminated with the bacteria. Infection can occur when these bacteria enter the body, typically through the mouth, and cause illness, such as gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhea, abdominal pain, and fever. Therefore, it’s important to practice good hygiene, such as washing hands regularly with soap and water, especially after using the bathroom and before handling food, to help prevent the spread of E. coli infections.
