It’s a lovely day, so all the playgrounds are full of kids and we can’t go anywhere near them. We are the Flying Dutchman of pox.

@prehensile when we had the 'pox it was 2 weeks back-to-back during the Easter holidays. It sucks. And the irony is that is most contagious before the spots appear. But at least it only happens once

@hhulbert @prehensile NHS seems to say it’s infectious from 2 days before spots appear to about 5 days after?
