    You can catch chicken pox from shingles, but you cannot catch Shingles from chicken pox, because to get shingles you must have already had chicken pox.

    I'd cancel. Without hesitation and reschedule.

    My uncle got them as an adult. He was put into ICU in a medically induced coma because they were not only all over his skin, but they were internal too .
    After about 5 days they told us things didn't look good, and he may not come out of the coma... we were lucky! He did come through, and has had no long-term problems as a result.

    I would tell everyone it’s their choice to come or not.

    I think it’s a unanimous cancel. Don’t even offer for people to come at their own risk.

    Definitely cancel. I know it’s extreme but what if people did come (even if they were aware of the chicken pox), they or their children contracted it and then passed it to someone else, someone who may be immo-compromised, or a young baby? It’s just not worth the risk imo. Yes it may be a only a small chance of something like that happening but given how dire the consequences could be, it’s certainly not a risk I’d be willing to take

    I'd be spewing if I got there and found out your child has chicken pox.. Unless past the infectious stage of course.

    When is it past the infection stage?
    They are all dry and tomorrow will be day 5 of spots.
    The venue has changed by the way, no Father’s Day lunch here so the family (except my son) will go to my in-laws.
