ATTENTION MEMBERS : Chickenpox Alert

We have recently received notification that one of our members has been diagnosed with chickenpox.

Please be aware of the symptoms for chickenpox which usually begins with:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Followed by a generalised rash a day or so later and starts as itchy red spots but rapidly progresses to blisters. A person is infectious from two days prior to the onset of the rash until the blisters have all crusted into scabs, usually about five days after they appear.
