Yes apparently their is nothing to be worried about

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Thanks for sharing the details. Yes apparently you appear safe and their seems no reason to be worried about. All needles aren't black either. Even if you had touched some black needle it doesn't interpret anything dangerous based on this. Since you are safe and you don't have any symptoms to re flat anything bad, you can consider yourself safe. Regards.

Brief Answer:
No need of HIV test and it's seem dangerous

Detailed Answer:
Hi! Thanks for sharing more details. Well both the contacts and encounters you have mentioned seems benign and no further testing is advised. Such contact doesn't usually yield blood borne infections but chances of contacting any other infection like skin or droplet infection is still present because of general exposure to envoirnment and not specially to homeless person depending on the degree of exposure that you have mentioned. And don't over think these factors as it can lead to prolonged obsessions and depression. Hope this has answered your query. Regards.
