Default adopting a kitten with ringworm

I am going to see a kitten at a rescue at a vets office. She has/had ringworm. She is being treated right now for it. I guess she got back a negative result so they are waiting for one more negative.
Ia m concerned about the fact that I have another cat and kiddies. I am planning on putting her in a safe room-which is our bathroom in our playroom. I am going to kitten proof it too But what else can I do to help prevent anyone else getting it?
Should I wait to pick her up?

I personally would wait until she has had the all clear as you would not want an outbreak of ringworm in your house. As its a fungal infection it can be spread really easily. It is easy to treat but not pleasant to have.
All the best,

Thanks. My DH sort of freaked out and told me to wait. So we are waiting.
