Pertussis

My four year old step son "might" have pertussis. He's been with his mother for the past two months because we have missed a couple of visits, however her was scheduled to come this weekend. His test results don't come back until next week and they currently have him on antibiotics in case it comes back positive.

I am currently 24 weeks pregnant but had my booster when my two year old was born, she's also been vaccinated. All this is moot because my step son was also vaccinated however apparently there is still a 20% chance of getting it?

I'm just curious how long until we no longer have to steer clear of the little guy if it turns out that he has it? If my husband visits him is it possible for him to bring it home to us? I want to be cautious but at the same time we are behind on visits and its a bummer to go this long without seeing him.
