Is my child is too sick to go to day care?

If your child has a fever above 100 degrees, has signs of severe illness such as persistent coughing, trouble breathing, wheezing, diarrhea, vomiting, or a rash, the child shouldn't go to day care.

Day cares often have policies about admitting children who are ill and also about administering medication. Ask the director/caregiver at your child care operation about their policies.
