It's more about cleaning hand contact points and places she might have touched or coughed from now on I would say.

It is very contagious but mostly from direct contact... 2 children sucking the same toy or one coughing over the other.

I hope she is feeling better soon x

It is air born much like the common cold so strict hygiene is your best bet although i think it has a 2 week incubation period so is probably too late
