How would you handle visitors? Our town is under siege from the flu... it's bad. Our hospital doesn't have any beds free, the doctors offices are closing at times because all the staff is so sick... blech.
I have a good good friend who had a baby last week and didn't realize it had any issues before birth, but upon birth realized he does have a problem (rectum didn't form properly) and he had to stay in the hospital for almost a week. He'll be coming home for the holidays to return in 1-2 weeks for surgery. I don't think this friend realized how bad the flu has gotten here in the last week, so I text her to tell her how bad it was going around. She said she had no idea and said she wasn't sure what to do about visitors, what precautions she should take.
If you had a little one at Christmas (when company is high anyway) and you knew everyone under the sun wanted to come, what precautions would you take? Obviously wash their hands really well, and I told her to question visitors before they come as to if anyone in their family had been sick/had fevers? Any other suggestions? Would you tell people not to come unless they're super close friends/family?
