if someone is living with a family member diagnosed with H1N1 is the non-sick family member safe to be around or are they contagious too?

The regular flu is composed of different genetic types than the swine flu. The so-called swine flu is actually now known to be made up of human, avian and swine flu viruses that have recombined into a new strain.

It spreads in the same way as seasonal influenza – through direct contact (being within one metre of an infected person) or indirect contact (touching a contaminated surface).
