Vomiting and Diarrhoea
Guidance on Infection Control in Schools
In September 2014 Public Health England updated their Guidance on Infection Control in Schools and other Childcare Settings. A key recommendation in this document, which schools have been instructed by Essex County Council to follow, is that children should be kept off school for a period of 48 hours from the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.
