Do Iguanas have diseases that could infect humans?

I recently saw an iguana and its owners at the pool in my apartment complex. It wasn't in the pool but it was right at the edge. I've heard Iguanas have salmonella in their skin and that it can infect humans and potentially be lethal. Can you please tell me if there is any chance that the iguana may infect the pool if it goes in it. I don't think it went in this time but it may have in the past, who knows. And even if it didn't, it was on the edge so if it does have diseases, could it spread into the water that way? Thank you.
