Public Health Notification

Published October 17, 2017 By Frankie Gouge

One case of pertussis, commonly known as whooping cough, was confirmed in an Appalachian State University student on October 16, 2017.

County and university health officials report the individual diagnosed with pertussis is being treated per guidelines established by the State of North Carolina and the Centers for Disease Control, and is fully cooperating in following isolation instructions. Although recently diagnosed, the individual is no longer considered contagious and public health officials do not believe the student has come into close contact with any populations who are at high risk of developing a serious case of pertussis.

AppHealthCare and the university strongly encourage members of the university community and the community at large to be sure all of their family-household members, especially infants and young children, are up to date on their immunizations.
