I am taking my ds2 (14months) to doctors today at 3pm as i think he may have Hand, foot and Mouth, He seems a little under the weather but over all not to bad, no the question i have is do i HAVE to close? i have 2 after schoolies and a 2 year old all day today, tomorrow and Friday? -Never had any illness so a bit unsure? TIA
Others have posted before me but I'm interested in what bambi06 said.....does something somewhere show this? The Health Authority guidelines are given exactly for this reason and they say don't need to exclude. I had a mindee once with this but kept him as was advised by their Dr that no need to exclude
Number4 - interesting isn't it I always let parents decide and in my policies it says if they choose not to send in cases where I'm allowed to be open, it's half pay. Anyway, it's a bit like the Health Authority list saying no need to exclude for conjunctivitis and Drs say it's not contagious but it SOOOO IS isn't it!!!
So the answer is.....I haven't got a clue, do what you think is right
back from doctors and confirmed, she said highly infectious and try to keep away from other children! Also rechecked my policy and it says that i will NOT take a child who is contagious so looks like i will;l have a copule of days off!!! <<wanders off and wonders what i will do>>
