Do you allow once sick chickens to rejoin the flock?

I had an approx 4 month old BCM pullet who somehow contracted a bad respiratory illess overnight about 6 weeks ago. We nearly lost her. We took her to our local all animal vet who prescribed her sulfatrim and meloxidyl for 10 days. She is fully recovered now and acting and looking back to normal, and has been completely fine for a little over 4 weeks now. I still havent put her back out with the other girls in my flock bc I read on a chicken fb group that she can be an asymptomatic carrier for the rest of her life and still get my other hens sick. Is that true? What do yall do when one gets sick and fully recovers? I have 20 chickens. Unless you ask my husband how many I have and in that case I have 8 Lol
