In brief: Ok
If the question is it ok to continue breastfeeding- yes.
But you need to use very good handwashing techniques and maybe consider even wearing gloves until your infection is gone.

In brief: Yes
Yes - ok to still breastfeed.
Be careful with good infection precautions, like washing hands. Keep feeding and baby may even get some protection from the breastfeeding.
