We live in the US and my sister is planning to travel from Florida to Peru in 10 days. We expected to visit with her this week (haven't seen her in about 8 months). But we have hand, foot & mouth disease (coxsackie virus).

If we transmit the virus to her and she carries it to Peru, would we be potentially introducing the virus there? I need to know whether to cancel the visit and just wait to see her when she gets back.
