YES! Bitlocker has nothing to do with virus protection.

Bitlocker encrypts your selected drive, preventing unauthorized entry only when it's locked. But to use the drive, you have to unlock it to be able to read / copy / save / modify your files. It acts unlocked as any normal drive. When it's unlocked and you save a file containing a virus, also the virus is saved.
Bitlocker can not control what you are doing when the drive is unlocked, it doesn't regognise contaminated files. It really has nothing to do with AV protection.
