A bit of a concern, but not overwhelmingly so. Maybe if I were you and worked with kids, I would be moreso. I'm on 100 mgm of 6MP. I also have two grandkids and although I love them dearly stay away from them when they have colds. I wash my hands almost compulsively.
Funny Heather stated about not shaking hands, etc. For awhile they stopped the distribution of wine in our church ( Roman Catholic). I never received it anyway because I always disagreed with drinking from the same chalice. Thought it very, very unsanitary. Wiping the outer edge of the chalice just didn't cut it with me....sorry Pope. Thought they could invest in individual cups like the Protestants..oh well. They did stop shaking hands there for awhile too, but notice on Sunday people did shake hands as a sign of peace.
I do think, come fall, people will be more on the alert of this Swine Flu.
