We have a suspected case of Fifth Disease at St. Agnes School.
Fifth Disease is a common and harmless condition that afflicts young children. A child who has contracted Fifth Disease will display a rash on his or her face that gives the appearance of a hand slap (a more wide-spread rash will appear a few days later).
While the disease is relatively harmless, and in fact not legally reportable according to the Health Department, it can present some serious risks to the fetus of a pregnant woman infected with the disease.
If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Lasovich
