I'm pretty sure pneumonia itself isn't contagious but the virus that causes the inflammation might be. I'd just be sure to watch your child for signs of illness and treat whatever symptoms come on if any.

It depends what it's caused by. The pneumonia itself isn't contagious, but if it started as a virus, then the virus would be contagious. It is unlikely that you would get pneumonia. You would likely just get the virus.

Depends on whether or not it's bacterial or not.

 Pneumonia?  It's pretty contagious.  You might want to be thinking about wearing masks when you visit.

I always though pneumonia was because of a virus that your body wasn't able to fight off well enough.. I could be wrong though..
