When is it time to go back to work if you’ve had the flu? The consensus among experts is that you’re contagious one day before symptoms begin, and five to seven days after becoming ill. If you have a weakened immune system you may be infectious for a bit longer. And if you develop a complication from the flu, like pneumonia, that may extend the contagious period a week or two. The general rule: Stay put until you’ve been fever-free for more than 24 hours without the assistance of temperature reducing medicine. (Women’s Health)
