    Hi,

    I don't know if guidelines have changed, but I work on a respiratory ward where the swine flu cases have been treated. We have been told if we have a temperature of 38C or over/symptomatic of swine 'flu then not to come in for at least a week, or when you are no longer exhibiting any signs of 'flu... mind you, it looks to be so nasty that I'm not sure you would be able to drag yourself back until you were fully recovered anyway.
    Hope that helps!

    Yes Peru is right, however it's best to check with your school for local guidance. If you think you have Swine Flu and are symtpmatic you need to stay at home, and not return until you have no more symptoms.
