The herpes virus is quite fragile. HSV does not survive outside the body for more than about 10 seconds, and although it can survive for slightly longer in warm, damp conditions, it dies very quickly once exposed to the air. Transmission through inanimate objects such as toilet seats has not been documented. However, exercising good hygiene is always a good idea!

The herpes virus can be killed with soap and water.
