Strep Throat

Monday I visited my friends house and daughter was home too, and she told me her daughter was having really bad sore throat symptoms, her daughter said she had been having these symptoms for a week now. We all were hanging out in their living room watching tv. She was going to the doctor that day with dad, when they came back they said she had strep throat and was going to be on antibiotic augmentin (generic form) for 10 days. The next day I also watched her brother's volleyball game with her and her dad and was sitting with them.

Wondering will I get what she had, or was she already passed the incubation period.
