Is it safe to handle birds if you are sick?

Are particular kinds of illness worse than others for handling birds? I ask because I woke up this morning with an eye infection. If I'm going to be home all day, I'd like to handle the birds....

I did a little Internet search, if you have conjunctivitis it may be transmittable to your birds.
I couldn't find much else besides that (except the usual zoonotic diseases).
