Can Access Control Lists in switch prevent Virus Outbreak ?

Last Modified: 2013-12-09
I have my PCs in Network Segment A.
I have configured Network segment A from accessing Segment B & C using ACL in switches.
So Network Segment A can not reach to any segment B & C.
In this case if a PC connected to Segment A has some viruses will it pass or outbreak the viruses to segment B & C.
Can the viruses pass over the network level ACLs. Or the ACLs will block the virus spreading over network..
