My cousin + her husbund are quarantined for 10 days...
that means they can't leave their house at all ! They get fed by the government that brings food to their house and whateer they need.

2 Buffalo Sabres hockey players are quarantined,for fear that they were in contact with a doctor here in Toronto...who has it.

Campbell and Warrener Held Back

Buffalo, NY (March 29, 2003) -- The Buffalo Sabres today announced defensemen Brian Campbell and Rhett Warrener did not travel with the team to Raleigh, NC, and will not play in tonight's game versus the Carolina Hurricanes due to medical reasons.

Prior to the teams departure to North Carolina last night, the Buffalo Sabres medical staff, in consultation with the Erie County Department of Health and the New York State Department of Health, it was determined there was a remote chance Campbell and Warrener may have had limited exposure to the SARS (Severe Accute Respitory Syndrome) virus. A relative of Campbell, who lives in the Toronto area, has been diagnosed with symptoms related to the SARS virus and may have exposed Campbell and his roommate Warrener while visiting the two earlier this week.

After in depth consultation with everyone involved, the Buffalo Sabres medical staff then determined the best course of action was to be ultra-conservative and leave the two players at home for further medical examination and observation. As of Saturday afternoon, Campbell and Warrener have shown no signs of being infected with the SARS virus

a family who was visiting china brought it back here, then they got sick and pasted to people in the hospital when the doctors didnt know what was going on. then it just spread to those who came in contact with it.

i know lots of friends and family who work in hospitals who are either quarantined for 10 days at home or just were sent home as a precaution for 10 days. its pretty serious. they say if you start to get symptoms of phemonia then you should contact a hotline , chances of you getting into a hospital are near impossible right now. because i was driving past sunnybrook and they had that place locked down like it was the area 51, tons of police on site. they arent letting anyone in unless your an ambulance.

no
but if you are near someone that is infected with this shit. it can be transferred by when they cough or even when they breathe.


also said that if one was infected in a room, shouldn't enter the room for the next 6 hours or more from when they leave.
