You are fine.  As long as you aren't having sex, you won't get it.

I would wonder about this though - chlamydia is easily cured with antibiotics, so if she hasn't gotten treatment, I'd have to wonder why.

Maybe your uncle meant she HAD chlamydia?  Or did he have it and not tell her?  That would be a lousy thing to do - untreated chlamydia can cause a lot of problems for her.
