Would you go?

I had plans to go visit a friend today (spring break). She lives a little over an hour away, so I'm not able to see her very often. I guess on Friday night and Saturday morning she spiked a fever of 102. She didn't have many other symptoms. Just a bit of congestion and feeling feverish. By the afternoon it was in the 99s, and Sunday it was gone and she feels fine. Weird. I was planning on going, but I was talking to my mom and telling her my plans and my mom was surprised that I would go. Now I'm hesitant. I wouldn't be at all concerned if we were meeting in public, but I will be at her house, since she has a 2 year old.

Would you be concerned?

24-hour rule.

If the fever has been gone for about 24 hours, I would say that it's fine to go and visit. My only hesitation would be if I was going to be seeing someone in the hospital, a young child, or someone with a compromised immune system after my visit.

We let students return to school using the 24 hour rule, so it's the rule I follow in my personal life as well.

I would not be concerned. If they were up to it, I would still keep my plans. But I am different, I never let that sort of thing bother me. I would even visit if they were still running a fever, if they were up for company.

I would only be concerned if someone else in your friend's home has since developed a fever. It might help if you checked on that before you go.

Thanks! She says everyone is feeling fine today, so I think I'll go. I come from a family of germaphobes.

I know you said you'd go, but I probably wouldn't. Nothing wrong with being a little overly cautious. I'd just catch her the next time around.
