Re: when do you know you are not contagious from the flu

When you are well and no longer have any symptoms.

Many people do not stay home until they get well and spread the flu to others.

Every time a person coughs or sneezes a cloud around them for about 6" to 10" is contaminated with germs. Others unknowingly walk thru this cloud and breathe in the germs and become sick.

Re: when do you know you are not contagious from the flu

generally you are contagious for 1-2 days before symptoms start and then for 5-10 days. if you are running a fever, you are contagious until you have been without a fever for at least 24 hours.
