Parents warned about Roscoe Middle School whooping cough

Posted: Updated:

There's another case of whooping cough in the Roscoe/Rockton area.

This one's at Roscoe Middle School.  According to a message sent to parents, the case is confirmed, meaning the student's lab test came back positive.

The district encourages parents if their child develops a persistent cough to contact a doctor.

Just a few weeks ago we told you about a case diagnosed at Hononegah High School.
