When are you contagious?

About spreading the flu:

How Flu Spreads | Seasonal Influenza (Flu) | CDC

The Flu Is Contagious

Most healthy adults may be able to infect other people beginning 1 day before symptoms develop and up to 5 to 7 days after becoming sick. Children may pass the virus for longer than 7 days. Symptoms start 1 to 4 days after the virus enters the body. That means that you may be able to pass on the flu to someone else before you know you are sick, as well as while you are sick. Some people can be infected with the flu virus but have no symptoms. During this time, those persons may still spread the virus to others.

We both got it a couple of weeks before Xmas, most likely from an airport or airplane when we were traveling back home from visiting my sis in Vermont.

It sucked. Big time. First time I've felt that bad in years.

Never had a flu shot. Also not a survivalist, but I do like those big cans of food.

Hope that the rest of you not yet afflicted with the flu wash your hands...a lot! Our roommate managed not to get it, I think in part to my staying out of the kitchen and spraying down any surfaces we touched with Lysol.

Looking at that CDC map I have one thought...

The rest of the country should keep their flu-ridden selves OUT of California for the next few months.

j/k.... sort of.

Now you're sounding like REWahoo does about Texas.

I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
