while shingles, aka herpes zoster, are not as contagious as herpes simplex, they are still contagious and "a person lacking varicella immunity can acquire chickenpox from a herpes zoster patient" taken from Mosby's Medical Dictionary.

Shingles are not contagious. They are a "left over" virus from chicken pox, of the herpes variety, but they are not contagious. Believe me, I have suffered with them for years and they are not "spread" by contact.
