I tested positive for the flu two days ago. I had a low-grade fever but have been fever free since yesterday morning while on tamiflu (oseltamivir). Am I still considered contagious?

In brief: Yes

Fever or not, you are shedding virus for a minimum of a week.
Plan your activity with this in mind.

In brief: Influenza

If you have tested positive for Influenza A/B in the doctors office, the CDC has several recommendations for you to protect others.
Limit contact with others. Stay home while you are sick unless you need to get medical care. Wash your hands often and throw tissue away after you are done. Stay home until your fever has gone away for at least 24 hours. http://www.cdc.gov/flu/consumer/treatment.htm
