Hi and welcome to HCM. Thanks for the query.
Hiv cant be transmissed by air or on any other way despite blood or sexual intercourse. So it is safe to live with HIV + people. But there is higher risk because there is always possiblity of blood incident when you are close to those people. So just watch out not to be in contact with his blood or open wounds.
Wish you good health. Regards
