Willington Preschool has issued a warning to parents after a suspected case of German measles.
The pre-school issued a statement on their Facebook page and called for parents to be “vigilant”. The message said:
“Please be vigilant with your children; we have a case of German measles.
“If your child (or yourself) are unwell with a high temperature, sore throat and a rash, please visit your GP.
“This is highly contagious and dangerous to pregnant women and babies.
“If your child becomes unwell at pre-school and these symptoms are apparent, we will request you collect them immediately and seek medical attention. Thank you.”
A Public Health England spokesperson said they do not have a confirmed case of rubella, but they are waiting for the test results for this case.
