Assuming the microwave is fairly clean, I don't think it'll be a problem. I've always covered my food in microwaves anyway, to reduce cleaning. I have to share a microwave at work and I've been fine so far.
Thank you all for your responses. I guess I'm uppin' this thread to see if there is any new opinions out there. You guys have reassured me for the most part though.

If you share a kitchen with others who DO eat gluten, what do you do about the microwave situation? Its easier to get your own plates, utensils, etc., but do you also think you should get your own microwave? If I covered my glass bowl with a glass plate, would my food inside still be free from contamination?
I have thought about this as well! Especially at work, I've used the microwaves there, but wonder because I still have some pain everyday. I keep my food in it's container with lid and wrap it with paper towels. I use a paper towel to touch buttons. I'm now wondering about wipes?! I may be crazy, but I can be having a good day and step into my work "schools" lunchroom and start to hurt within 10 minutes. I have to touch a shared keypad to put my kids lunch numbers in, so I'm face first with gluten in the line. I try very hard to never touch a tray either. I wash my hands afterwards, but still end up feeling like crap after that. Is it the microwave or I'm super sensitive. I'm Celiac with an allergy to wheat abd barely as well.

I was heating the cup of water for my instant coffee every morning in that microwave and I wasn't feeling very good, even though I was so careful. The chance for cc seemed so great that I got a second microwave of my own, just to be safe. It was on sale...
We are a bit cramped for space here, but I have a microwave cart with my own coffee/sugar. There's no need for me to touch the other micrwave, so if there was any chance of cc it's gone now. I feel much safer.
