Extraction tables: Systematic review on the incubation and infectiousness/shedding period of communicable diseases in children

Data Data set

To support the development of a European Union (EU) approach to the control of communicable diseases in schools or other childcare settings, a systematic literature review was performed for the incubation period, shedding, and infectiousness for predefined disease categories. These findings have implications for the temporary school exclusion of children with an infectious disease. They provide evidence essential for public health action, such as the minimum period required for a school leave, and provide the evidence base for a guidance on the exclusion-making process.
