Default How Common is psittacosis?

I just finished the horror story in the "Is Quarantine THAT Important" thread and I'm just wondering how common psittacosis is??

I'm in southern Ontario and I'm preparing for my new budgie, I don't have one yet. I was planning to go to a local breeder, not a pet shop, but I'm a little worried about bringing this disease home to my family.

I have two kids 22 and 12 and I don't want to infect them or myself or my husband.

Is this a common problem?
