Is there any risk of getting HIV through simple closed mouth kisses? Are there any major diseases one should screen for if they had a kiss/kisses with a total stranger?

If so what should they be screened for and how long would the window periods be?

ANY INPUT OR SUPPORT would be MUCH APPRECIATED!

Thanks!!!

Closed mouth (or even open mouth) kissing is not a risk for HIV tranmission.
