It does all depend on your relationship with the people around you. I said no because certain family members (your children) need to know for their own health and prevention of future illness. Young children can sense "bad" and may think they did something bad or may think up something far worse than what is really happening. People will also be so peeved that you haven't allowed them to give you love and support in your time of need. Of course, there are times when it is wise to keep information to yourself. It's not really a yes or no answer.
