Hi Riffatadil,
Welcome to healthcare magic!
Meningitis spreads from infectious patient and not from patient's contacts who have taken preventive measures, so you are safe.
Meningitis is an infection and interpersonal spread is through droplet nuclei, that is by fumes of patients respiratory secretions in the air that reach to you.
I hope this advise would be helpful for you.

Still if you have any queries or doubts, please write me back,
I would be happy to solve them.

Wish you a great health!
