Return to Day Care Letter

When a child has been ill, many day care centers will not allow a child to return without an antibiotic treatment. However, not all infections can or should be treated with an antibiotic. This letter explains that the child has a viral illness and will not be receiving antibiotics and should be allowed to return to day care once his or her fever is gone. Parents can print this letter and take it to their child’s healthcare professional to sign, and then give it to their child’s day care provider.
