My fiance has a grandson with a staph infection in his finger coming over for Christmas. I am concerned about exposure to this, as I am on Enbrel shots.

Enbrel can reduce your ability to fight infection but the most likely infections you could contract are respiratory infections. I think you will be fine as long as you observe good hand washing techniques and the boy has the infected finger covered with a clean bandage. After the grandson leaves be sure to wipe surfaces down with a disinfectant cleaner.
