Riley hasn't had them, but I got it in college. I believe I had to be quarantined for a week (even though they say once you see spots you aren't contagious anymore), but I don't know if that week has anything to do with anything else.

It is contgious before the bumps during a slight fever.Once the child with bumps is clear then if you havent gotten them you shouldnt get them!!It is like a 7 day incubation I believe & is only contagious during the fever which lasts24 hours.

I thought it was 10 days from the time you come in contact with chicken pox. You could possibly get them. That's what I heard growing up. We had to stay home a week before going back to school.
