Kids can be little germ distribution machines. In crowded classes, once one gets sick, many others do too. CBS5 reports that Laramie County School District 1 has a large number of students out with a stomach virus.

Vomiting is normal, but if it continues for more than a day, contact your physician. About all you can do for now is to drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest. While it won’t help your child, it will help everyone if the sick avoid contact with others. That goes for parents as well.

A new study shows 39 percent of people go to work when they are sick. Seven out of 17 sick people go to the drug store, and 43 percent will go to the grocery store. Three out of four parents and millennials will leave home while sick.

Do us all a favor, don’t do it.

BTW, a simple cold is most contagious within five to seven days, after about the two – three days it takes to notice the symptoms. If you start feeling bad right after you’ve been in contact with a sniffing, coughing, hacking person, it probably wasn’t them, so put away the gun.
