But you really can't keep them off for a week for a tummy bug. Anything over a week's absence here requires a doctor's note, and I can't imagine you'd get any doctor to sign that off.

People infected with norovirus are contagious from the moment they begin feeling ill to at least 3 days after recovery. Some people may be contagious for as long as 2 weeks after recovery.

Most children develop symptoms [of rotavirus] within 48 hours of swallowing the virus. Symptoms are usually over within 9 days, and sometimes sooner. High concentrations of virus remain in the stool for 10 to 12 days after the symptoms begin in otherwise healthy children.
24 hrs is clearly not enough!
