Niece has measles , are we safe?

ok maybe I'm going out on a limb here, but I'm 38 weeks pregnant, my dd is 20 months old, today is my baby shower, my mil takes care of my 15 months niece who has the measles (they think, they live two hours away), my mil is coming to our shower but not bring the baby, are we still at risk?? could my mil or bils carry the virus without knowing it?

  • Yes, you are still at risk. I'd ask the MIL not to come. She can carry the virus with her.
