Welcome to HCM,
Without treatment chances of spreading infection is more so untreated patients are having more risk.
In your case as treatment is started, now chances of getting infection is less.
If she feels better and she is recovering well, other signs of her problem are absent, she can go to her office or she can wait still for one-two weeks.
Give her nourishing food and rest.
Ok and bye.
