My Child Has Had the Flu – When Can He/She Go Back to School?

With so many children in Bulloch County being diagnosed with the flu over the past month, the question has come up as to when they can go back to school. Children can return to school after having the flu when they have been fever-free for at least 24 hours. This means that the fever should be gone without the use of a fever-reducing medicine.
