  • Let him know it is vital his germies don't become your germies. Keep yourself in your bedroom or force him to stay in a bedroom. Keep hand sanitizer laying around everywhere, eat immunity boosting foods, drink tons of orange juice and hot tea, and cross your fingers! If you are truly VERY CONCERNED, buy a (medical) face mask!!!!!!!!!

  • Don't be around him more than you have to be, wash your hands often and have him do the same. But really, being in the same house with him is almost a guarentee to get sick too. Why is him not coming not an option?

  • Talk to your dr....see what he/she recommends you to do...
    what does your brother have? keep hand sanitizers all over the house and USE them...
    Make sure everything that your brother eats off of is washed in HOT/Soapy water right away... wipe counters down too...
    Try juices, OJ, are you on vitamins now? keep them up if you are... teas are good... good green teas....
    Make sure bathrooms are kept extremely clean after ea person's use....

  • Don't get induced until he is well.
