Unhappy child with flu - help??

ok, my question is that I keep children/babies. I have taken the flu shot, but one of my parents decided not to give their 8 month old the shot, and he has the flu and the croup,.

Well, he started the tamiflu Thursday, went to the hospital with croup, 104 fever, and ws released friday night.

well naturally the parents want to bring him back to child care on Tuesday, with still cough, congestion, and now ear infection... but he is NOT sick.

how soon are you not contagious???? It doesn't help that I am on a steroid med pak which makes me it easy to contact sickness.

I can't believe all that germ is gone, am i WRONG>
