Dear Parent or Guardian:

 

There have been three confirmed cases of pertussis (whooping cough) reported in your child’s school. Although transmission of pertussis is not common in the school setting, we do want to call this to your attention and alert you to the signs and symptoms of pertussis.

Pertussis is easily spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing. Typically, signs of pertussis occur within 7-20 days after being exposed. Pertussis begins with cold like symptoms and a cough which becomes much worse over 1-2 weeks. The pertussis cough can be severe and last for weeks or months, sometimes leading to coughing fits (paroxysms) or vomiting. Between spells, the person may appear to be well and usually there is no fever. Anyone can get pertussis, but it can be very dangerous for infants and people with weakened immune systems.  Family members with pertussis, especially mothers, can spread pertussis to newborns.

Recommendations:

  1. If your child has a cough and/or other symptoms of pertussis:
  • Make an appointment with your child’s doctor as soon as possible and tell the doctor that your child was exposed to pertussis. Your child may have to stay home from school and activities such as sports or play groups.

     

  1. If your child has been told by a doctor that he or she has a weakened immune system, please contact his/her healthcare provider as soon as possible regarding antibiotic treatment. 

     

  2. If your child lives with (a) a pregnant woman, (b) an infant aged <1 year, or (c) anyone with a weakened immune system, ask your child’s doctor regarding the need for antibiotic treatment.

     

  3. If your child has been diagnosed with pertussis by his/her doctor:
    • Tell the school that your child has been diagnosed with pertussis.
    • Unless your child has been coughing for 21 days or more, you should keep your child home from school and activities (such as sports or play groups) until your child has been on an appropriate antibiotic for five days to treat pertussis.
    • Ask your child’s doctor for a note that states your child has pertussis.
    • The health department will be contacting you for additional information.

       

  4. If your child’s doctor says your child does NOT have pertussis:
    • Ask for a note from the doctor telling the school that your child’s cough is NOT pertussis and that your child can return to school and other activities at any time.

 

Please make sure your family members are up-to-date with pertussis vaccinations. Pertussis vaccines are recommended and available for children, adolescents, and adults.

 

If you have questions, please call the Monroe County Health Department at (608) 269-8666.

 

Thank you for your cooperation.
