Hello Helen,

The simple way to guarantee this is, if your daughter has finished a 3 days course of antibiotic then she can go to school.

It is a sign of improvement that she has no fever anymore. I am happy about it. It is safe for her to go to school now, if it is only dry cough that is persisting.

Take care.
