Chickenpox case confirmed at Westlake

The Health Centre has been advised that there has been a confirmed case of chickenpox in the Year 11  cohort and the infected student was at school during the contagious phase of the infection.

Early symptoms are the same as a common cold and the virus is spread by coughing and sneezing. It can take 10-21 days after contact with an infected case to develop chickenpox. However, if you have had chickenpox or received a vaccine against the illness it is highly unlikely you will develop the infection.

Chickenpox is not a notifiable infectious disease. It is, however, a serious infectious illness for pregnant women and people with a reduced immune response.
