IMPORTANT HEALTH INFORMATION
The NHS Lothian Health Protection Team has asked every school in Edinburgh to publicise the following health information:
MEASLES INFECTION IN LOTHIAN
Measles cases have been confirmed in Lothian over the past month in teenagers and young adults. The symptoms of measles include fever, lethargy, runny nose, conjunctivitis, cough and a red, blotchy rash which starts at the head spreading over the chest and limbs. The rash generally fades within ten days.
If your child develops symptoms suggestive of measles, you should keep your child at home and contact your General Practitioner for further advice by phone (or NHS24 if out of hours on 111). This is very important in order to avoid the spread of measles to other people.
People with measles are infectious from around five days before the rash appears until four days after the rash appears and should self-isolate at home around this time.
The best protection against measles is two doses of MMR.

Thank you for reading this important advice, and for your cooperation.
