Can mono be transmitted by sharing a water bottle of an infected person ?

i drank out of someones water bottle after they were done and they started symptoms of mono 1-2 days later, how likely is it that i have it? (we are both 14) also, i am scheduled to go to florida in 6 weeks, what is the chance of being sick then if i am infected?

AS PER YOU IT IS ALREADY CONTAMINATED WATER AND THEY HAD MONO SYMPTOMS. FEVER, SORE THROAT, FATIGUE AND ABDOMINAL PAIN ARE COMMON IN THIS REGARD. IT IS NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT IT. YOU GARGLE YOUR MOUTH AND THROAT WITH LISTERINE SOLUTION TWICE OR THRICE A DAY AND TRY TO BE IN FREE AIR TO PREVENT ITS VIRULENCE. IN CASE THE SYMPTOMS ARISE TAKE ARYTHROMYCIN 250MG TWICE A DAY AND ACECLOFENAC IS TO BE TAKEN ACCORDING TO THE NEED WHICH WILL RELIEVE FROM THROAT PAIN. NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT IT.

Two questions: 1) Can syphilis be transferred when a person with syphilitic chancres on his fingers prepares food for others? 2) If transfer of syphilis requires direct contact with a chancre, how can syphilis still be passed to another person after the signs of both stage one (chancre) and stage two (rash) have subsided?
