Q. My sister has this disease and she works at a daycare.Can this disease be airbourne? Children come to the daycare sick. Some of her co-workers were out from work because they got sick from some of the children.

A. I don't know which disease you are talking about specifically, but certainly viruses and bacterias from sick children can infect people around them, especially close contacts like workers in a day-care center. The best way to avoid infections are usually washing hands multiple time a day and after holding the kids, this also helps to not infect the other kids around.

Q. I'm so sorry. I'm talking about the Gulillain-barre'syndrome that my sister has.

A. Well that is not an infectious disease and is not something she could have caught from working a a day-care center or being around children. The exact reason for this disease is not certain but it is known that there are both genetic and immunological factors that play a role.
