Guidance: whooping cough

Guidance letter: whooping cough - please read


Dear Parent/Carer, 

Following a confirmed reported case of whooping cough in Rosehill School, the UK Health Security Agency have asked me to circulate the attached guidance letter. I would ask you to take the time to read the letter carefully.


Confirmed and suspected cases should be excluded from school for 48 hours from commencing appropriate/recommended antibiotic therapy or for 21 days from onset of symptoms (in those who are not treated). Asymptomatic contacts do NOT need to be excluded.
