Overview.

Children with the flu should be isolated in the home, away from other people. They should also stay home until they have no fever without the use of fever-control medicines and they feel well for 24 hours. Remind your child to protect others by covering his or her mouth when coughing or sneezing. You may want to send your child to school with some tissues, and a hand sanitizer, if allowed by the school.

It’s a decision every parent faces regularly: whether or not to keep a sick child home from school. It would seem like a simple decision. If your child is sick, of course, they shouldn’t go to school or daycare. But besides the fact that it’s not practical to keep a child home for every sniffle, keeping a child home can be a real hardship for working parents and it means that a child is missing out on learning and other activities. So, it’s a decision that should be made as wisely as possible.
