You may laugh at me, but please stop long enough to answer my question

Ok, I am the general object of mockery for my husband and friends because cross contamination haunts me. When you start cooking a dish with raw chicken or ground beef or whatever, are you supposed to switch to a clean spoon once the meat is cooked? I don't seem to notice that on any cooking shows. Is there a risk for cross contamination if you don't? Help appreciated, and if it turns out I am rightly the butt of all jokes, then so be it! :)
