If you daughter has had chicken pox, then she cannot catch chicken pox from your granddaughter and hence your daughter is safe to go to work.
However if your daughter hasn't had chicken pox, then it would be wise for her to stay away from work until the scabs have gone from her infected daughter.

Odd question to put in adverts.
This is Tammy's first question, so I'd assume she may have posted there by accident.
AB can be confusing at the best of times.
You can actually catch chicken-pox twice. My son did. In each case the chickenpox was confirmed by an experienced nurse and a (different ) general practitioner. That means that not everyone who catches chickenpox gets a lifetime immunity.
Contrary to popular belief it certainly doesn't give immunity from shingles, as I know to my cost.
