Recommended Posts

We have a policy which gives the examples of expected absences for various illnesses. There's also a poster which you can get that gives the same information. What particularly are you wanting?

Has she not had chicken pox before then? Do you have any pregnant mums at your group? I don't really think its practical to keep a member of staff away from work on the off chance she may have contracted chicken pox though.

the only problem with chickenpox is they are most contagious before spots but it can take 10-14 days before spots come out. so probably not practicle for staff to be off that long. we had first case before christmas still getting more now.

Unless your staff member has an immune deficiency or is pregnant it might not be feasible for them to be excluded on the off chance they could get chicken pox from a child. Partly this is because of the reasons already stated but also adults and children can get chicken pox more than once so you could end up with everyone wanting to stay off "just in case"!
