Swine flu virus infection is considered to be potentially contagious as long as a persons symptoms persist and for up to seven days after onset of illness. Children may be potentially contagious for a longer period.
Sorry, but I don't know if any different when being treated with Tamiflu.

I had the swine flu about 3 weeks ago and the doctor told me you are contagious until you have taken Tamiflu for at least 24 hours. After my 5 days of Tamiflu treatment I started to feel sick again. Went back to the doctor and come to find out the flu caused an upper respiratory infection which is a bacterial infection. So be careful because according to the physicians this has been happening quite frequently. After the flu is gone, it can turn into something else which makes it dangerous especially if the flu is tied with pnemonia then it can turn fatal especially if have poor health.
