I'd get a bottle of one of those alcohol-based hand cleaners and try to find a place for it near the cage. I'd clean my hands up to the elbows before an after every session of holding him. Doing so should greatly reduce the chances of you passing anything to him or passing anything from him to your snakes at home. My California Kingsnake likes to crawl into my shirt. I don't mind letting him do that, but I wouldn't let a strange snake or a snake at work do that. If I let the snake at work do that, I'd certainly change the shirt and shower before letting my own do it. What Toby said is right.

It's not how many snakes you have. It's how happy and healthy you can keep them.
