Confirmed Cases of Pertussis (Whooping Cough) In Williamstown District Health Alert Symbol

Williamstown Independent Schools would like to inform families that there have been 4 confirmed cases of pertussis (whooping cough) in our district. Please be mindful of any cough, fever, and runny nose. If present, please follow up with your physician immediately. Even those with a current immunization may contract pertussis. Diagnosis requires a test at the Dr's office. Treatment is typically 5 days of antibiotics, during which time students must stay home from school. The cough may linger after treatment, but is no longer contagious after treatment is complete.Most healthy individuals will fully recover from pertussis, but it is dangerous for infants and those with other health concerns. We ask for your cooperation in decreasing the spread of pertussis in the school community. 

For additional info, please contact the Northern KY Health Department at 859-363-2071.
