Health (Ms. Sue)--Is my answer correct?

Compare the ways that HIV can and cannot be transmitted.

A: 6. HIV can be spread in many ways that involves physical contact that can result in the virus being led into a person’s body. Such ways include sexual activity with an infected person, sharing needles, syringes, or any other injection equipment with an infected person; and contact with body fluids from an HIV-infected mother to her infant before or during birth or by breast-feeding. However, HIV cannot be transmitted by casual, physical contact, such as shaking hands, holding hands, kissing, hugging, or playing sports with friends. HIV is not spread by sharing bathroom facilities or utensils. You cannot contract an HIV infection by using the same toilet seat as an infected person. You will also not contract an HIV infection by sharing a water glass or spoon, using the same water fountain, or drinking from the same can of soda. Furthermore, you will not contract an HIV infection by eating in the same restaurant or by working alongside an infected person?
