Sharon came home from work last night with some startling news. One of the other carers at the nursing home is off sick, with TB, which of course can be highly contagious. I did have a BCG vaccination at 12 years old prior to traveling the world, so not overly worried. Another has gone sick with Meningitis. The winter season has started to take hold.
I have taken the day off from work because I needed a medicine review with my GP and have a HiRes CT Scan with contrast this afternoon. My GP told me not worry about the TB case, if it was infectious then it would be reported to Public Health, who would then become involved and all contacts with it would be traced as an urgent matter. So that overnight worry is now put to rest.
