Parent/carer letter re: scarlet fever

Dear Parent/Carer,
Across greater Manchester we have seen a recent increase in the number of cases of Scarlet fever. Scarlet fever is a highly contagious, bacterial infection that is commonly seen in children between the ages of 2 and 8. It is spread by aerosol-coughing, sneezing, and breathing out as well as coming into direct contact with an infected person.
Please be vigilant for symptoms in your child, these can be found in the letter HERE.
