Friends, Students, and Guests:
As instructors of children and as good neighbors we are concerned about public health and
wellness. The Center for Disease Control reports that 102 cases of measles were reported throughout 14 states in January. The Oregonian reported yesterday on a confirmed case of measles in nearby Lane County. Rubeola is a viral disease spread by coughing and sneezing. It is extremely contagious. Symptoms may be severe and include fever, cough, runny nose, red eyes, and a characteristic rash. If you have questions or concerns regarding rubeola, immunizations, or the MMR vaccine please discuss these feelings with your family and primary health care provider. We recognize that at this time of year there are many common communicable diseases and encourage regular exercise, a healthy diet, plenty of sleep, and frequent hand washing. If you feel sick or experience symptoms of illness please protect our community and do not come to class. We will be happy to see you return in good health. We welcome your input. Please address any comments to Almiro or to our staff via email.
