That is absolutely not true. The fever has nothing to do with contagiousness. It's only one obvious sign of illness.

I don't want kids in my house with HFM, but if it's not that bad, I take them, and we just deal with it. I've had kids get very sick from it though, and I won't let those kids come over.
