Guinea Pigs

I've been sick (a coughing/sneezing/achey cold-type illness) for the past 4-5 days and have been avoiding touching my guinea pig and anything that he touches (my roommate has been feeding him, etc.). I feel terrible that he hasn't been picked up or anything in such a long time, and I am worried that he might get depressed. This leads me to my question: can an animal (specifically a guinea pig) get sick from a human?

Thank you so much for any help you can give.
