Are there any precautions I should take to prevent my beloved chelonians from getting sick? Can they contract what I have?

Probably a ridiculous question; I'll do a massive water cahnge tomorrow.

Probably not.
Having people acknowledge your existence is a wonderful thing.

Washing your hands before and after handling them is usually enough. Maybe limit that time if you're sick... more for your safety than theirs. Feel better!
