Mono is an infectious disease transmitted through saliva mainly (the "kissing disease") or through sneezing or infected utensils. However, it is not transmitted as easily as influenza or common cold.

Once you get the disease, you also get immunized, so, you got protected for future infection.

Wish you fast recovery!
