Salt Spring Public Health contacted our School to mention that their Chief Medical Health Officer, Dr Hoyano, wanted to let parents on Saltspring know about increased Pertussis activity on our island.  She asked if we could put a 2-3 liner in the school newsletter as follows...

Reminder: There is heightened activity for Pertussis or Whooping cough on Saltspring.  Please keep this in mind if your child develops a persistent cough, especially if they are in contact with a lab confirmed case or they have an infant in the household.  

For more information, please call Public Health at 250-538-4880 or see link.
