Thank goodness I talked to my daughter's teacher and my daughter was clearly confused. Her friend is going to New Mexico next week. The teacher is keeping an eye on this, definitly as she knows the kid's family is going there. My daughter's teacher had some sort of immune disorder a few years ago, so she is really careful about sickies. Good. We do have a high population of hispanics here so it does concern me. I'm not trying to play the race card, but they are known to travel from place to place and now it's planting season, so it is time for the migrant workers to start coming in.
Anyway, since the incubation period is supposedly around 2-5 days and there is no signs of it around here so far, I'll keep her in school. Now when
the first case is diagnosed in this area, it's over, she's home.
And a word of warning, I don't remember if it was last year or the year before last, the warning about kids and Tamiflu - it can change their
behavior in a very negative way.
The school so far has said nothing, although after today, I'm sure we'll either get a note sent home or a recorded phone call this evening.
In the meantime, I'll be watching and listening and waiting.
