No such thing as overreacting when it comes to gastro! It can be passed on so easily and It's a nightmare so you are doing the right thing

I would stay so so far away, I hate gastro with a passion and have a fear of vomiting so you wouldn't see me for dust. No offence to your sister but I don't understand people's laid back attitude towards it, gastro can end up for more than just a bug.

I'd stay away, DD just returned to daycare this week and we are already on her first dose of gastro for the year. TBH it makes me so angry that parents send their kids knowing they are unwell or have recently been in contact with another unwell child. DH thinks I'm completely over reacting but it's the same courtesy I'd show to others and I expect the same. It's basically meant our entire family are under quarantine so we don't pass it on to a very elderly overseas visitor (family) who flies out soon and this will probably be the last time we ever see her (if we do get to see her that is). The flow on effects to everyone are huge, it's not just a 24 bug, by the time we all catch it, take time off work to recover/care for each other and ourselves you're looking at a week or more.

Stay away. The nieces and nephews may have contacted the bug but not shown symptoms yet.

I would stay away. We all got it just before christmas and it took ds2 11 days to completely get over it. It was rough. Plus I've got a vomiting phobia.
