Note: conundrums are not meant to have a “right” answer – they are to see how most people are practicing. Would love your comments also regarding your thought processes and the evidence behind your decisions. We can learn from each other!

Got this one from a recent EM physician facebook group post. You see a mother with symptoms of influenza. Her 3 day old asymptomatic full-term infant is tested and is POC influenza+. There is good follow-up and the patient is healthy, afebrile, feeding well, etc.

Would you admit an asymptomatic 3 day old that is influenza+?
