3 days in

Monkey came down with a cold. He is very very snotty. It took 3 days for him to catch something off someone.

He also has a high temp, when we spoke to the school this morning, they said to keep him off and keep an eye on him. While they are assured its not Covid, they didnt want to take the risk.

I mean, Christ, if we are going to have to take time off everytime your child’s temperature is slightly up children are still not going to get the education they deserve.

I think we need a different approach to the whole thing. I get that having a high temperature is one of the symptoms, but when you have nothing else and a snotty nose. Its probably a cold.

If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck its probably a damn duck. Or in our case, if its snotty with no cough and still enjoying the taste of food. Then its probably a cold.

    I’m not sure where you live, but whenever my 4 children had a cold (long before COVID-19) they were asked not to come to school if they had diarrhea OR a fever w/in 24 hours. My employer also didn’t want us coming to work if we had a fever. No one wanted our cold or flu. The school’s approach seems reasonable to me. I’m sorry Monkey is sick. 😞

    • He just has a very snotty nose and a slight temperature, in normal times I would have sent him in, but because of the temperature, we wanted to check it with the school first. He seems much better this evening though, I was worried about today because he had PE and I didn’t want him sat in shorts and a shirt all day
