Check with her doc: The question is about her cxr. About 50% are normal and the patient is not considered to be contagious. 50% have abnormal cxrs and may be contagious. The health department's job is to find contacts asap. You may also call the health department if her doc does not want to give you the information. Another good option is to have yourself evaluated by her doc.
