RSV Return to School

We are seeing unprecedented numbers of cases of RSV, and many of our patients are older school-age children. Ever wonder when those kids can return to school? RSV is contagious up to 8 days after symptom onset, so children can return to school on the 9th day after symptoms started. However, young infants and immunosuppressed children may shed active virus for up to 4 weeks.
