Aids and caregivers
Feb 7, 2001
I am a preschool teacher and I was wondering how can I protect myself from becoming infected with the Aids virus from the children I work with? Thank you Likus
Response from Dr. Dieterich
Dear Likus, The HIV virus is only transmitted through blood and sex so you are in no danger. If one of the children cuts themselves and has AIDS be careful how you clean it up. Otherwise the risk is really minimal. DTD
