Yes. This is not a seasonal disease. Strep throat is the more common name given to the infection of the throat caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pyogenes. If you come into contact with an infected person (physical contact with that person or salivary fluids or sinus mucus) you are at risk of contracting it. Some people (about 12% of the population) can carry the bacteria with no symptoms. Streptococcus pyogenes has been shown to survive without a host for as long as fifteen days.
