There have been fewer than 750 cases of Hantavirus in the United States ever. You are literally more likely to die of a vending machine tipping over on you.

How else is this fear manifesting in your life? Is it keeping you up at night? Are you not able to live as freely and happily as you did before?

Therapy might help you with those things, to see if you have an actual anxiety disorder.

This is a huge fear of mine as well because I am constantly dealing with mice and their droppings  (I live in the country). I have swept and vacuumed droppings without a mask many times by accident because sometimes it is unavoidable and you don’t know until it’s too late. I think you’re probably okay but you could always talk to your doctor!

I never knew this was a thing and I’m glad I didn’t after all of the mouse issues we dealt with at our previous dwelling.  From December to June I dealt with mouse dropping issues on a pretty much daily basis and lived to tell the tale.  You will be fine.

I know if it were me, I wouldn’t be able to rest until I knew definitively and I would imagine all kinds of symptoms that I was experiencing.
