I tested positive for influenza yesterday. I had a fever yesterday but haven’t had one since last night. Will I be okay to be around people in 2 days?

Mgt.: Tamiflu may be helpful in limiting the course of influenza. You may be ill for 1-2 weeks, and still contagious. If you have prolonged fever/cough, please see your PCP.Fluids, rest and monitoring your temperature is advised.
