My toddler just got diagnosed with Norovirus my CD4 is under 200. Is there a safe way to take care of him and NOT get myself sick?
Response from Dr. Young
Hello and thanks for posting.
Sorry to hear about your toddler son. Norovirus is notoriously contagioius- this is why we hear about massive cruise ship outbreaks.
The best thing you can do to stay safe and healthy is to wash hands and household surfaces frequently with soap and water.
Let us know how you manage through this. There's little out there on norovirus and HIV.
Be well, BY
