NIC Kids Center Reports Pertussis

A child at the North Idaho College Children’s Center was officially diagnosed with pertussis or “whooping cough,” a highly contagious bacterial disease, Thursday, May 6. The affected child is 3 years old. Following Panhandle Health District protocol in an effort to prevent the spread of the disease, all children at the NIC Children’s Center who were showing mild cold-like symptoms were sent home from the center. NIC is requiring that all children sent home must be tested for pertussis with their physician before returning to the center. The center is not closing and will remain open through the end of the academic year Friday, May 13/Stacy Hudson, NIC Press Room. More here.
