This would be very unlikely, as long as you bought your bird from a reputable dealer and had it checked by a vet with good experience of avian diseases. Also keep in mind that infected birds shed the organism in their faeces and nasal secretions, and these can still be infective for some months afterwards e.g. in cages.
