Have a little one whos just arrived with a chest infection diagnosed over the weekend and on antibiotics. Should she be excluded. She seems fine apart from a cough but what would you do?

Is she well in herself and had antibiotic for 48hrs, if she is l wouldn't exclude.

Chest infections are not contagious , only the cold virus that caused it

so if she is well enough to join in then I wouldnt exclude

As long as they are alright and can do the things I do then I would take them and carry on giving them the AB.

Yeah shes fine a bit quiet but we'd planned a free morning session as she goes at 12.

She has had loose stools but from experience I know this could be AB side effects. Never the less we've used gloves for bum wiping and lots of hand washing!
