I may have swine flu and DS1 is going on Scout Camp at the weekend

Snotty nose, aching legs, bit of a sore throat and cough, though I don't feel too bad, so I guess it could be swine flu. DS1, who shows no symptoms, is going on camp on Saturday. Guidelines stated that you shouldn't keep family members of swine flu 'victims' off school unless they showed symptoms, so do you think that it's okay for him to go on camp?

DD2 was diagnosed with it at the weekend. All of the rest of us are fine. DH taken it as a great excuse to work from home all week though grin

Reckon you should let him go unless he seems ill himself.

Yes. When my dh had sf my dd and myself (both not having symptoms) were told we could go out without any problems. (we all did take tamiflu though)
