Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Tonsillitis may or may not be contagious. If its viral it is usually contagious. If its caused by a streptococcal infection which is a bacterial infection its also very contagious.
If the tonsillitis and enlarged adenoids are chronic or caused by a chronic condition, such as sinusitis or allergic rhinitis, it is not likely contagious.
Having said that this infection usually does not remain contagious after twenty four to forty eight hours.
So by Sunday it will most likely not be contagious.
