The Monroe County Health Department is investigating a case of Pertussis (whooping cough). Pertussis is a vaccine-preventable disease and if you or your child is up to date on immunizations, the probability of infection is lowered.
Please consider the following recommendations from the Monroe County Health Department:
1. Contact your physician if you or your child displays cold symptoms with a persistent cough. Pertussis immunization status should be reviewed and age-appropriate vaccine should be given and antibiotic treatment can be initiated if needed.
2. If you or your child develops Pertussis, you will not be permitted to attend school / daycare/ work until 5 days of appropriate antibiotic therapy have been completed or for three weeks after the onset of cough, if treatment was not given.
3. Keep your ill child at home until he or she is no longer contagious. Keep contagious children home from activities where this disease could be spread to others. Examples include church, scouts, and team sports.
