Lupus : Lupus is an autoimmune disease of your body. Many lupus are on medications to suppress the immune response of the body to the disease. As long as you are not currently having any infection or fever; and you are following the standard infection disease prevention protocol of the hospital (wearing masks and protection clothes and gloves) , you are protecting yourself and your friend as well.
