Chicken Pox

There have been a few cases of chicken pox at Lindy Lou’s recently. The Health Protection Agency advises that if your child has chickenpox, try to keep them away from public areas and avoid contact with people who have not been infected. Chickenpox is most infectious from one to two days before the rash starts, until all the blisters have crusted over (usually five to six days after the start of the rash). To prevent spreading the infection please keep your child away from classes until all the spots have crusted over. Thank you.
