The South Country Central School District issued a warning that a faculty at Bellport High School was diagnosed with rubella, also known as German measles.
The school area sent an email to the parents on Friday, so they learned that a Bellport High School staff was diagnosed with rubella. The email continued to share the symptoms indicated by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, including fever, headache, pink eyes, cough, runny nose and more.
News 12 spoke with a student who said the faculty member is their teacher in social learning. She says that the classroom was quarantine and that the students had to go to the library on Friday instead.
The school says it was the faculty’s personal doctor who diagnosed the case with rubella. The school reported to the state health department that could not confirm if it is in fact the case with rubella. It says that you look at the patient’s blood work. There was no word for how long the test takes.
