Hello Anon
Thank you for writing.
A four year old should not be allowed near someone who is contagious. Otherwise, a face mask and gloves should be worn during care for the person, with no shared utensils. Surroundings should be cleaned with bleach on a regular basis. Medical advice should be sought to know how long the contagion will last.
