A child should be fever free without the use of fever-reducing medications for 24 hours before returning to school or childcare. A child with vomiting or diarrhea should remain home for 24 hours following their last episode of vomiting or diarrhea. Contact your primary care provider with any questions or concerns regarding illness.
