Most turtles do not have salmonella. Some states banned the sale of pet turtles do to a few isolated cases. Overboard in my opinion. I had a pet painted turtle that I cought in a pond for over 10 years. Salmonella is a bacteria. If you have any open wounds look for redness, swelling, and puss. If the bacteria is ingested it may cause nause/vomiting/diarhea. Chances are you were not exposed to salmonella, but to be safe you should thoroughly wash your hands after handling the turtle and apply neosporin to any open wounds. You can clean the tank with bleach. Bleach will kill salmonella if it is present, but make sure to completely rinse and dry the tank before putting any animals back into it so they dont get sick from the bleach.
