How contagious is the stomach bug?

Can I get sick from handling a baby who had gastro two weeks ago? I know babie''s are contagious for longer than adults. My friend''s baby drooled on my hands/arms and on my clothes. As far as I know, the baby stopped vomiting just a little less than 2 weeks. I did shower when I got home and didnt touch my mouth/face till I got home. Please advise.
