Official guidelines for how long a child should stay home after contracting rotavirus vary from state to state. In Texas, for example, there is no specific guideline for rotavirus, like there is for ringworm or pink eye. However, children with diarrhea, fever, or two or more vomiting episodes in the past 24 hours should be kept out of school.
A rotavirus infection may go away without treatment. Your child may need any of the following if he or she is dehydrated or at risk for dehydration: Extra liquids may be needed. Ask how much liquid your child should drink each day. Good liquids to drink include water or fruit juice. Your child may need an oral rehydrating solution (ORS).

To prevent spread of the virus, children who aren’t sick should not be in contact with a sick child. Which children are at risk for rotavirus?
Most children get the virus. During the course of the infection, your child might first get a fever and vomit. Watery diarrhea can then occur between three and seven days thereafter. The infection itself can last for 10 days.
