How contagious is Parvo?

A coworker of mine is worried because the gal who sits in the cubicle next to her recently lost a puppy to Parvo, and the adult dog is currently hospitalized for treatment. Steph is worried that the parvo dogs' owner is bringing the virus to work and that she might bring home the disease to her own three dogs, one of whom is still a pup (but vaccinated). Should she be concerned or, if the parvo owner has already bleached her house etc., is there enough of a "buffer" and she doesn't need to worry?

It is highly contagious, you can spread it around on the bottom of your shoe actually, however if her dogs are vaccinated she shouldnt worry too too much.
