Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Advisory
---------------------------------------------------
Dear Members of the Community,

Two students who live in Appleton Chase have come down with Whooping
Cough. Both are taking antibiotics and should be over it very soon.

Comprehensive information on Whooping Cough, also known as pertussis,
may be found at the DHMC web site at:

http://www.dhmc.org/webpage.cfm?site_id=2&org_id=2&gsec_id=0&sec_id=0&item_id=38710

It important to realize that the principal reason for concern is to
protect infants age 6-12 months or
less who are at risk of serious disease from pertussis. For adults
pertussis is a contagious respiratory illness, characterized by
prolonged cough, but with very rare exceptions it is not a serious
illness. Many adults get pertussis each winter without realizing what
they have and the cough eventually goes away on its own. According to
the DHMC, antibiotic treatment may help resolve symptoms in some cases
and it will certainly
make you less likely to transmit the infection to others. So this is a
general advisory notice for your awareness.

Thank you,

Nancy Nienhuis
Dean of Students and Community Life

"Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your
gentleness be evident to all. The Lord is near. Do not be anxious about
anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving,
present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all
understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."
Philippians 4.4-7
