Welcome to the forum.
UTI is not contagious.
It will clear with a course of antibiotic. Cefuroxime is a good antibiotic
If recurrent , a possible cause needs to be looked for by doing ultrasound scans to check for stone or block.

General methods that help in prevention are
1. Plenty of oral fluids.
2. Cranberry juice.
3. Emptying the bladder at bed time.
Best regards
