Talkback: Sarah Cawood lost a mum friend over arguments about the 48-hour sickness rule


  • The 48 hour rule is there as even though you may feel fine you can still carry the virus in your system for 48 hours- hence why you shouldn't really be interacting with lots of people- some are airbourne and some are through contact. I can sort of understand when its only one bout of vomiting as many things can cause it but when its a dmv bug, it can spread like wildfire. I think not being friends is probably easier if you don't want to have regular arguments although the school run may be a little more awkward now.
  • I totally agree as a parent and a teacher that the 48 hour rule is there to protect everyone and of people adhered to it then bugs would not spread as often nor as fast.
