  • Maybe it is just me and my nature to worry but I would call the doctor right away and see what they suggest. And at the first sign of any symptoms I would be at the dr. office or ER. But like I said, I have a worrying nature.

  • I would call my doctor right away. Any idea how they got it? Where they went, etc?

  • I asked my dr. the same things and he said that if we weren't showing signs not to get tested but def call your dr. and ask them what they want you to do.

  • I would monitor your temps, etc. every hour. You may want to go ahead and get teh 16 month on an antiviral, but the doctor would let you know if that was necessary. In the meantime, I would sanitize everything they came in contact with!
