    Default How would you interpret this cc policy?

    So, DS had a charming poo/spew bug overnight and this morning, so obviously he couldn't go to childcare. He had well and truly recovered by this afternoon and was able to keep food down etc. Just reading the childcare handbook, it says he needs to be excluded until 24 hours after the return of his 'normal bowel motion'.

    I'll keep him home tomorrow just to be safe, but I was wondering, do you think it would be enough for it just to be over 24 hours since his last diarrhoea poo? What if he doesn't even do a poo for a couple of days? Surely that's enough proof of recovery?

    I'd say if he hasn't had diarrhoea or vomiting since this morning then he should be right to go to childcare on Friday. That's 48 hours since he had his last display of symptoms. 24 hours since the return of a normal bowel motion as you said is tricky because what if he doesn't poo?

    K. Thanks. That's what I thought would be fair.

    When I had a vomiting bug (gastro) my doc said I had to stay away from work for 48 hours since my last vomit.

    So perhaps the policy is 24 hours since the last diarreah poo but the policy is just poorly written...?

    I know it's not the same thing, but my work has a policy where you have to stay away for 48hrs after the last bout of diarrhoea, as the bug is still active in your gut. As kids tend to be great sharers of all things bug like, I would be inclined to keep him home until it's been at least 24hrs since the last diarrhoea poo/vomit. Even if he's doing better he can still spread the bug to others at CC.

    It definitely says 24 hours after normal movement, but I agree it doesn't make sense to me.

    I agree, that's what I'm worried about is spreading it. But if I send him on Friday it will be 48 hours since the last diarrhoea (presuming it's passed), so that should be safe for others shouldn't it? Regardless of whether he's done a poo or not?

    Yep. I would keep him home tomorrow but send him Friday if no more vomiting or diarrhoea.
