My wife caught the stomach flu and began vomiting last Sunday (today is now Saturday, so she started showing symptoms six days ago). The last time she vomitted that I know of was Thursday morning, but tonight she didn't cover her face all the way and sneezed on my face accidentally. Am I at a risk for catching the stomach flu now? I washed my face off with a wet rag (after washing my hands) a few times because I'm paranoid.
This question has also been asked and answered here: How long does the flu last for?
The viruses points of entry is nose face and eyes, always wash your hands before touching these areas. try not to get close to anyone that could sneeze on you, call your Doctor Monday he might can give you antiviral to ward it off, should you start feeling it coming on, hope this helps you, I'm so sorry, I know she did not mean to do that.

You remind me of my ex husband. Would not bring me a glass a ginger of ale, because he thought he might get sick. Remember in "sickness and in health" ?
