So my nephew has pneumonia and right now is living ith us as well so I was uder the impression that it is contageous but SIL says tha it is not. Well I always thought that as long as you have a fever then you arere contageous and I really dont want my DS (6 yrs) or DD (3 mons) to get it. So my question is contageous or not? Please bump if you aere not sure Thanks in advance

My husband and I have both had pneumonia (not at the same time), but have never gotten it from each other, so I don't think it is contagious.

the pneumonia its self isn't contagious but the cold virus is. lots of good hand washing should be done and no drinking out of eachothers cups.
