Herpes Type 1 Transmission
A household member (nanny) recently tested positive (3600 units/ML) for Herpes Type 1. Im concerned about the kids in the household. Will they be at risk or should i dismiss the nanny?  Is this transmittable via

1. kissing.
2. mixed saliva in drinks/food etc.
3. saliva mist exerted via speech.
4. sharing laundry washing

I am really worried, but i do not want to unnecessarily dismiss her, if it isnt fair to her. Please advise, thank you!

1 out of every 2-3 adults in the US alone has hsv1 orally. The prevalence is much higher than that elsewhere in some countries.  Odds are that between you, your spouse, the children's grandparent's etc, many of you have hsv1 orally even if you aren't getting obvious cold sores to know it.  You could actually be sued for dismissing a nanny due to oral herpes to boot dear.
