can I get herpes from a water fountain?

Hi, so today I was filling my water bottle at this water fountain and I dropped it inside the fountain I picked it up and washed of the mouth piece and cap briefly with the fountain water. I drank out of the bottle afterwards and only realized later what I did. I'm extremely stressed and anxiety ridden with worries that I might get herpes from this incident. Please reply soon. Thank you.

Ok, you need to speak to a mental health professional about your completely irrational fears. Just reread all your other posts.

Hi, I'm so sorry about this but can you please explain to me how the transmission would not occur? I need to learn about these things to stop my fears.
