Flu fears

So here is my dilemma. Our neighbours are currently on vacation in Mexico (Mayan Riviera). My daughter and their son play together almost every evening. With all the news about Swine Flu, I don’t think I will be letting them play together for at least a week when they return. The problem is that he is not old enough for school yet and stays at home with his dad. My girl goes to JK and daycare. Should the little guy get sick and pass it on to my daughter, she’d be the one infecting the neighbourhood. I feel bad for him because he plays with all the kids on the street and I know he won’t understand why he’s not having any play dates. Am I overreacting here?
