With this round of crud that’s hit our family, I’ve been so torn about church attendance. I don’t want to get anyone else sick, but I know it’s vital that the spiritual health of my children be attended to.
In my very little amount of research on this, I’ve come across this article that makes a ton of sense.
“The bottom line, then, is this: Keep your child home from school if there’s fever, or if the child feels too crummy to participate — but don’t worry so much about the runny nose in the row behind.”
I think we’ll be coming to services more often with runny noses. Kids can be contagious without showing any symptoms, and can be coughing their heads off just because the virus they just got rid of irritated their lungs’ linings. There’s no way to know.
