School is closed in Madison County Schools for today, and possibly longer, prompted by an outbreak of whooping cough. The illness (which is not deadly, but a real bummer) is quite contagious, so the small number of infections so far led the Thomas Jefferson Area Health District to shut things down to keep things from spreading further. The story is in today’s Progress.
One thought on “Madison Illness Closes Schools”
On channel 29 they’re pronouncing it “wooping” cough. It’s actually pronounced “hooping” cough. The “w” is silent.
I’m just saying.
