Tips for Infectious Disease Control recommended by the St. Clair County Health Department:

Proper hand washing before, during and after school and covering your nose and mouth when you sneeze and/or cough is extremely important. For more info, see the 3C’s Poster.

If a sexually transmitted infection or disease is suspected, contact St. Clair County Health Department for referral information for testing and/or treatment. You can find additional information here.
Skin eruptions should be followed up with a professional healthcare provider (i.e. MRSA, Ringworm, etc.).

Students with gastrointestinal upset should be free from vomiting and/or diarrhea for 24 hours before returning to school.

Students with a fever (temperature of ≧100.4 degrees) should remain home until they are 24 hours fever free without fever reducing medication.
