  • "they" say 24 hours after your fever. But I also hear "they" say children can be contagious as long as a week later.

  • My Ped. just told me, My two kids have H1N1, that 48 hours after any high temps. And as long as they are on the TamiFlu they can't be in general pop. So no school untill they are done w/ their meds! This was just today we saw her, I made it a point to ask b/c I have heard about a hundred different things.

  • If you're still coughing, sneezing and "snotting" you're still contagious, but not as much.
