Norovirus Health Alert
Important Public Health Notice Issued Regarding Norovirus – The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) has noted a marked increase in the number of reported outbreaks of Norovirus in schools and daycare facilities this fall. The Norovirus is a very contagious acute gastrointestinal virus characterized by diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain.
IDPH has released guidance concerning limiting the spread of the virus and exclusion recommendations for children and staff in schools and daycare facilities. The guidance is posted on the Illinois State Board of Education's website and can be accessed directly at http://www.isbe.net/esd/pdf/Norovirus.pdf.
In response to recent reports of vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps among some District 62 students, the Cook County Department of Public Health makes the following recommendations:
If your child becomes ill with gastrointestinal type illness (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain), please see your primary medical provider.
Make sure your child practices proper and frequent hand hygiene at home to reduce the risk of disease transmission. Soap and water should be used for cleansing hands after using the restroom and when hands are visibly soiled. Alternatively, when hands are not soiled, waterless, alcohol-based sanitizers may be used.
Clean environmental surfaces (i.e., table tops, door knobs) and surfaces contaminated by vomit with a bleach solution (1/4 cup bleach to one gallon of water).
Keep ill children away from school for one (1) day after symptoms end.
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Cook County Department of Public Health at 708-492-2150 or Donna Zenger, District 62 Coordinator of School Health Services, at 847-824-4901.
Thank you for your assistance in complying with these recommendations.
