  • At least a minimum of 48 hours After symptoms have stopped. I go 3-4 days to be safe.

  • Absolutely, and that is 48 hours after the gastro stops, not from when it starts.

  • I wouldn’t send a child back to school until they feel well enough and are back to eating regular food.

  • Usually when the vomiting and diarrhoea are under control and they’re back to normal eating. I usually send a change of clothes just in case
