People are more contagious before symptoms appear. The time from when a person is exposed to the flu virus and infected to the time symptoms develop averages about 2 days. At the first sign of the flu, go to your doctor. There are antiviral drugs (such as Tamiflu) that the doctor may prescribe to shorten the duration of the flu, if treated early.
