I also read that it is fairly hard to catch CP from someone who has shingles. I wouldn't say 100% for sure it wouldn't happen, but unlikely. If you go, just make sure your Mom washes her hands a lot. I think my MIL has shingles all the time, literally. Or very often. She stays over for holidays and DS hasn't gotten CP from her. But he's also not touching open sores on her, and I think if she did have any sores they are on her back under clothing.
