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:
- 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.
