The risks for HIV have not changed since you first asked: https://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV-Prevention/Hiv-/show/3027059

The ONLY risks for HIV in adults remain:
1.  having unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse, and
2.  sharing intravenous needles.

There is no other event that you can think of that would put you at risk for HIV.

Being worried doesn't increase your risk.  It's still zero.
