Pertussis Outbreak

Since January 14, the Montgomery County Office of Public Health (OPH) has seen an increased number of cases of pertussis (whooping cough) at Souderton Area High School. A fifth child was recently diagnosed with pertussis. Your child may have been exposed. It should now be accepted that there is an outbreak of pertussis in your community, and we urge you to seriously consider the recommendations listed in the important letter to parents.
