Good Morning..wondered if anyone could give me advice on a case on Conjunctivis...i had the LO in my care on Tues n she went home with slightly sticky eyes,advised Mum to see doc etc,which she has done (Tues eve),its conjunctivitis and LO has drops,she is due in today but is keeping her at home,and may well do the same tomorrow,what is the exclusion period for Conjunctivitis?

I dont think there is one officially. Most agree to keep them off until its cleared up for the sake of others but some places let them continue attending

Just looked on the guidance on infection control and it says there is no recommended period to be kept away from childminders setting. It is quite contagious but starts to clear up quite quickly once the drops are given.
