Q.

H1N1

my husband and i are both doctors in a government hospital. im always wearing an ordinary mask around(want to get N95 soon) he' s a neurosurgeon in training so he hardly sees flu patients etc
im worried of taking infection home to 2year old and 4 month old, what other precautions can i take? was even thinking of quiting work and stay with them till the pandemic resolves! now im having allergic sinusitis but im panicking thinking its swine flu!
