DR. says H1n1- swine flu keep it away from your family. How?

A dad has it. He's got toddlers at home as well as a breast feeding wife with his newborn. DR. says don't infect your family? How can he be careful? His family runs a day care and he can't go there. Other family are older with compromised immune systems. He can't go to work. So how can he make ends meet or pay bills? What do you suggest? How to deal with this responsibly?

  • flu is air born so unless he moves out for 2 weeks that statement makes no sense

    plus he's probably already infected everyone

  • He could isolate himself in a bedroom or other room. Meals being brought to him. If he must share a bathroom, the room could be cleaned with disinfectant wipes on the faucets, toilet flusher, doorknobs. He doesn't have sick leave at work? Nothing in the bank for a rainy day? Sounds as though they need job counseling and maybe public assistance for a while.
