Student with Chicken Pox

A student at Yorba Linda High School has recently been reported with chickenpox. Chickenpox is not usually a serious illness; however, any person who develops chickenpox should stay at home until the rash has completely crusted over (usually about 5 days from the time the rash started) to prevent further spread of infection. If your child develops a rash that may be chickenpox, please consult with your doctor and notify us at 714/986-7500 ext. 14033. For more information on chickenpox, see <a href="http://www.ochealthinfo.com/epi/">http://www.ochealthinfo.com/epi/</a>. Click to read more information...
