Scarlet Fever Warning Issued
Clark County parents were urged this week by Miss Gertrude M. Clouse, county nurse, to cooperate fully during the school year in preventing a reoccurrence of last year’s outbreak of scarlet fever.
From October 1935, to March 1936, inclusive, no less than 117 cases of scarlet fever were reported in the county, according to the records of the State Board of Health.
"Scarlet fever is particularly dangerous," Miss Clouse points out, "because it affects some individuals so slightly that it may escape attention and care, yet may be communicated by then to others who may suffer a more malignant form of the disease."
"Hense parents throughout the country are urged to watch their children closely for sore throat and rash, and to keep the child out of school until it is certain that scarlet fever is not involved."
