"The most common causes of low grade fever in children are viral infections like flu and common cold. Children tend to suffer from these infections quite often, probably because they spend a lot of time indoors with other children, for example in kindergarten and in school, so the chance of getting an infection is higher. Viral infections are particularly common in the winter season. Bacterial infections are another common cause for low grade fever, especially strep throat and sinus infections. Other possible causes for low grade fever in children include chickenpox, ear infections, bladder infections, rubella, mumps, measles, roseola, dengue fever, Coxsackie and the so-called "fifth disease" or erythema infectiosum."

Fever and lethargy is not something to ignore.

24 hours fever and symptom-free, a minimum of 48 hours after being sent home from daycare.
