My Child's Friends Have Just Recovered From The Swine Flu. How Long Before My Children Can Play With Them And Be Safe?

Question: My child's friends have just recovered from the swine flu. How long before my children can play with them and be safe?

Answer: Well the virus, when children no longer have fever and no longer have symptoms, is markedly less. They certainly should be well before that you allow them to play with the children, but a day or so after resolution of fever and symptoms they should be fine.
