The government say 5 days from on set of rash. I have a mindee that came down with spots on Friday and mum wants to know if he can come tomorrow. Spots have skrunk and crusted over she says. His nursery exclude for 7 days, so should I allow him back?

Mines 5 days or until all spots have crusted over.

HPA states 5 days from onset of rash as long as all spots are crusted over. Therefore if he came down with it on Friday (Friday-Tuesday is 5 days) as long as all is crusted over (not even 1 that is not) then he is good to come back tomorrow - as long as he is well in himself and can join in with a normal day at your setting. x
