How soon after a fever do you leave the house?

Eg a toddler had a fever, it went, would you spend time in nature? Or suck it up and stay home?

Get them out in the sun to soak up some vitamin d. Even just in there backyard

Of other kids will be around it should be 24 hours from when the fever went before you go. Just you and kid, enjoy but expect some lingering tiredness and go easy

I get them out of the house as soon as they have energy to do it, even if they sometimes still have a fever- fresh air is best for sickness. Excercise even better sometimes ... my mum always use to say swear it out for smaller sickness

OP I agree but was unsure! Thank you :)

By nature I mean not around people. Just at the beach or walking on a nice path through the woods
