Our expert says:
EBV (Ebstein Barr virus) or infectious mononucleosis is spread mainly by saliva - it could be infectious for a few weeks ( even a few months) after the acute infection but it gradually becomes less infectious. Most adults have antibodies against EBV. You should avoid alcohol at least for 6 weeks after the acute infection.
