my son just informed me this has hit his HS and hey are keeping it quiet (irresponsable in my opinionj) I spoke with a friend who is an NP and has a daughter teaching there and she confirmed one case in Kari's class and sent me to the CDC website. I am not going to post the whole thing, it's 6 pages long. but one thing they did mention in people with compromised immune systems. now, they are talking about REALLY compromised, like HIV, dialysis etc. but since some of our immune systems are, well, not good, reading over the guidelines might be a good idea especially if you get any open wounds or anything. the infor is easy to find on the CDC site, there's a special box on the right hand side just waiting for us anxious parent types. none of this aounds like a question. so, to what extent do we worry/take precautions?
