Pertussis Cases in the School District of Holmen

Since October 24th, 2016 the La Crosse County Health Department has seen an increased number of pertussis cases in the School District of Holmen.  Students may have been exposed to pertussis (whooping cough).  During the current outbreak, the La Crosse County Health Department recommends testing for persons who have a cough that have been exposed to a known case. If testing is not done, and the person is assumed positive and antibiotics prescribed, exclusion from school is recommended until at least 5 days of antibiotic treatment is completed. If a person with a cough is tested, and the test results are negative, exclusion is at the discretion of the physician.  


What is pertussis?

Pertussis, also known as whooping cough, is a highly contagious respiratory disease. It is easily spread from person to person by coughing or sneezing. Early symptoms include (1-2 weeks): runny nose, low-grade fever, mild cough. Later symptoms include (after 1-2 weeks): severe coughing attacks (attacks can make individuals gag, vomit and have trouble breathing)



You should call your healthcare provider if you think you or your child has whooping cough. That way, you can get treatment.
