Letter from Lake County Public Health in Response to Whooping Cough Concerns. Lake County Public Health 802 Main Street, Suite A Polson, MT 59860 Phone: 406-883-7288 Fax: 406-883-7290 www.lakecountypublichealth.org May 16, 2019 Dear parents/guardians, As you may well know, Lake County is currently experiencing an outbreak of Pertussis, or Whooping Cough. In addition, our neighbors in Missoula and Flathead counties are having significant outbreaks as well. At this point only 1 St. Ignatius High School student has tested positive. While this student did not attend school once the cough started, we are sending notices home with all students to educate families on the illness. If children who have been attending school with a cough illness test positive for Pertussis, we will take steps to notify parents of students who were exposed to the illness. In the event of a disease outbreak, children that are not up-to-date with required immunizations may be excluded from school by the local health officer or the Department of Public Health and Human Services until the student is no longer at risk for contracting or transmitting that disease. Pertussis is an infection that affects the airways, and it can easily spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing. Pertussis can cause a severe cough that lasts for weeks or months, sometimes leading to coughing fits and/or vomiting. Anyone can get pertussis, but it can be very dangerous for babies and people with weakened immune systems. Family members with pertussis, especially siblings and parents, can spread pertussis to babies. Recommendations: 1.If your child has a cough: Keep your child home from school and activities, such as sports or play groups. Make an appointment with your child’s doctor as soon as possible and tell the doctor that your child may have been exposed to pertussis. 2.If your child has been diagnosed with pertussis by his or her doctor: Tell the school that a doctor diagnosed your child with pertussis. Keep your child home from school and activities, such as sports or play groups, until your child has been on antibiotics for five days to treat pertussis. Ask your child’s doctor for a note that states your child has pertussis. 3.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 feel free to call the Lake County Health Department at 406-883-7288 with questions or concerns and ask for the communicable disease nurse. Sincerely, Leigh Estvold, RN Lake County Public Health Nurse
