    Yes of course, people like that I just find strange. Dh had someone coming to work with awful flu symptoms
    A few Years ago during that first really
    Bad swine flu epidemic, it did turn out to
    Be swine flu when he finally went to the doctor. It's a case by case thing and I'd hope most people would use common sense. Ds2 had swine flu and I didn't let
    Any of the kids go to school
    For a couple
    Of week incase they were coming down with it too.

    I am just always surprised in these threads at the automatic 'disgusting' comments when people don't know
    The whole story and when the fact is, so many illnesses are spread before
    People even know they are sick. Especially whooping coughs

    Yes! You're are spot on with the fact that most people have no idea they are infectious until well after they have been diagnosed!

    I had swine flu in 2009. By the time I was diagnosed my children has already been exposed and had been in contact with other children. Sometimes it's just impossible to shield people from infectious illnesses.

    Um I'm talking about the people who actually have symptoms. Of course you can't help it if you don't know your sick yet 😕
