Pneumonia is a lung disease which can be caused by different microorganisms. They can be viruses, bacteria, fungi or parasites.

Yes, your family can suffer the same only if the members encounter you while coughing or sneezing. It is so because its viruses or bacteria reside in mouth and nose, and therefore sharing drinking glasses, food utensils and towels can transfer the disease to your family.
