Do we have to exclude until well again if a child contracts this infection? Is it the same guideline as flu/influenza?

Looking it up it does seem to be a virus.

I wouldnt have thought you would have had to close HOWEVER if you think you child will need you and you wont be able to give 100% to your mindees then close :thumbsup:

I would treat it the same way I treat all illnesses - is it catching? Can the child (yours or cm) carry on with the normal day? Will I be able to meet all the children's needs if I care for an ill child too?

I hope he picks up quickly xx
