does anyone know how long is it taking for children to recover from this so they are well enought to return?

One of my mindees has came down with it and is starting treatment today so she said he will be back on Wednesday, i know she has to work etc but i dont want it spreading and i am not sure he will be fully recovered by then, am i wrong?

When are people most infectious?
People are most infectious to others soon after they develop symptoms, although they continue to shed the virus (for example, in coughs and sneezes) for up to five days (seven days in children). People become less infectious as their symptoms subside, and once their symptoms are gone, they are no longer considered infectious to others.
