Health Alert

16/08/2017

​We have had confirmed cases of Chicken Pox in our Grade 4 classes.

Signs:  mild fever, feeling tired and irritable, itchy, rash (commonly starts on cheek, back & face)

Exclusion Period:  Exclude until blisters have dried.  This is usually at least 5 days after the rash first appears in non-immunised children and less in immunised children

Chicken Pox is transmitted by airborne transmission and by contact with the fluid present in the rash.  Chicken Pox can cause a very serious illness in adults and can occasionally cause serious damage to an unborn baby if acquired during pregnancy.
