COVID….Strep A…..and now we have a number of cases of empetigo in school.
The advice we follow from the Public Health Agency is as follows:
Recommendation period to be kept away from school is until lesions are crusted and healed, or 48hrs after commencing antibiotic treatment. The antibiotic treatment, apparently, speeds healing and reduces the infectious period.
Thanks for your support in this matter. Any questions, please do contact the Office Team.
