Re: Stomach Bug

Most of the time, after a certain period that the bug has harbored in the body, it is no longer contagious. I would say that if they have been feeling better for some time before they have came back, you would be safe-but to be on the cautious side, you may want to stay clear.~~Heather

Re: Stomach Bug

They may not be contagious anymore, but if I were you I'd stay away for a few days, or at least take strict precautions such as hand washing.

I usually escape a cold when all my family gets one so it doesnt mean you will get it
It allways starts off worse for the first person and gets less sevre as it goes down the chain.
Mabie you could start taking a bit of pepto bismol for a few days! that may ward it off if it is coming your way as it will protect your stomach!
