if my DS is on antibiotics

and my mother who lives with us just came down with a viral case of bronchitis... Is it okay to let DS be around her? Can he catch it too if he is on antibiotics already?

  • Antibiotics fight bacterial infections. They are ineffective against viral infections.

  • He could still catch it. Like the other person said antibiotics are not effective against viruses.
