So, he's at the blister stage at the moment, and I've read he is infectious until 24 hours after the last blister has crusted over. Some are crusting, some have turned up only today.
I'm trying to decide what I can actually do with him in the way of holiday activities. He's only feeling mildly sick, and is physically fine to come on car trips etc.
So do I have to limit him to things such as say going on a bush walk where the chances of us meeting any people is minimal, or do I have to strictly keep him at home for the infectious period?

Don't see why you can't take him bushwalking.
By the time the blisters come it's the fluid inside that is infectious, before the blisters it's his respiratory secretions.
Once all the blisters crust over he should be good to go out and about with people.
