Default Advice on Influenza B

Hoping for some advice on what you would do! I have 6 young toddlers (3 families) in my care. My own 10 yo suddenly became ill and tested positive for influenza b last night. I closed today (younger son is home with a double ear infection, too) but seeking recommendations for when to re-open. I don't want to inconvenience my families, but I also want to keep their kids healthy (and be able to care for my own babe, who is miserable). Of course, money is an issue and I'm a single mom so it's not like anyone else can help out. In other sick times (strep, etc), I just keep him quarantined and stay open, but he's really sick. The friends/family I have that are dealing with this strain are telling me it's like a 5-7 fever/illness 😲 Advice?

I closed for 3 days (Wed-Fri) when my daughter got Flu B and Strep at the same time. I also got Strep. It was ridiculous. At that point I could have cared less what the parents thought about it! So from Wednesday to the following Monday off.

I closed W-the following Monday. My kids come first and I would expect families to be out for 5-7 days. It's not worth the risk of spreading germs and my son is in 5th grade.

My kids just got over being sick with the flu. Itís hit our whole city pretty hard with several schools closing because teachers are out, half the school is out etc. however, my husband had to take off Monday and Tuesday, I closed weds and Thursday and he had to take off Friday. My oldest was down for 6 days before he could even get out of bed and my 2 year old was down for 4. I would close the remainder of the week especially since itís the flu and I think your families will appreciate you more than anything to not get their kids sick as well.

My son tested positive last week. I just kept him quarantined, made sure he had everything he needed. Just an FYI, my son had the flu vaccine this year. Not a match but because he had it, his illness was not too bad.
