Did I get worms from my puppy licking me?

My 12 week old puppy has round worms. I didn't know till 2 days ago ive had her for 5 weeks. Could she have given them to me?

I dont feel sick or anything but she often would lick my toes and hands. I always wash my hands after handling her...

Should I go to the doctor? I hate to go during all this covid when the doctors have bigger jobs to do right now...


Please help im so scared.

    It's possible but not likely.  If you notice anything, go to the doctor.  And if you haven't already, go to your vet and get an all-wormer for the puppy.  If there are any other dogs or cats in the house, get them all treated for worms as well.
