We recently asked her this question: Do people need to stay home when they are sick?

Here is what she had to say:  Stay home when you’re sick. If you go to visit a loved when you don’t feel well, you can make a lot of people sick. Although a cold or flu might not be a big deal for you, it can be serious for people with weak immune systems, like young children, the elderly, and anyone with a long-term health problem. So do what’s best for you and everyone else, stay home and rest.
