Pertussis (Whooping Cough) Notification


Yesterday your wrestler should have delivered to you a letter from the MN Department of Health regarding a 7-12 wrestler who had a confirmed case of Pertussis. Because Pertussis can be contagious, the MDH wanted me to inform you and distribute a letter so you are aware of the potential symptoms and the protocol for identifying if there is a case. I’ve attached a copy of the letter: MDHPertussisNotification20121217.

If you have any further questions or concerns, please let me know. And, as the letter indicates, if you are concerned about your wrestler’s cough, please do see a medical provider as soon as possible.
