If your child says they are well enough to go to school, and they seem well, but they have a cough and a sniffly nose, should you send them to school? And if your answer is yes, what about the other kids at school who haven't got a cold?
I had a bit of a cough and a sniffle and went in to work yesterday. Karen is on holidays, so I had the office to myself. No risk of contagion there. And it wasn't a cold that was fatal to my ability to work either, and I'm supposed to be at the office Mondays and
Thursdays unless there's a good reason not to be.
But in a classroom you are surrounded by other kids. Just quietly, I think some of them may have colds too, though I don't know that for sure.
This cold, unless I'm much mistaken, is intense for a couple of days and then fades away, at least for kids.
What to do, what to do?
I've got to think!
