In brief: 24 h after ATB
If you treat the right bug with the right drug you are no longer contagious after 24 hours.

After a patient is on antibiotics for 24h, he or she is not considered contagious.
It is also helpful after diagnosis of scarlet fever/strep throat to change tooth brushes so that they don't reinfect self.
