Ok, I know this is probably a STUPID question, but I'm looking out for the health of my piggies. If I'm sick, is there any way I can make my g-pigs sick?

I've come down with a really bad cold the last few days, I've been washing my hands before and after I do anything with them but I've been avoiding lap time because I don't want to end up coughing all over them. I know that some things can be passed from human to pet and the other way around but I'm just unsure about guinea pigs getting human ailments. Thanks!
 
i think is depends on the virus. I have heard its impossible but then I have heard some viruses could be passed on to animals. I am just getting over a cold myself and I didn't really give it much thought and handled my guinea pigs still and they are all ok.
