Should I continue to attend swim class with the shingles?
I have the shingles. I do aerobic swimming every morning with other seniors. Can I continue swimming classes?
Shingles is the same virus as chicken pox, so it can be transmitted to other people by them coming in contact with your lesions. Lesions are considered infectious until they are dried and crusted over. Therefore, I would recommend that you not swim until you are no longer contagious. Good luck!
