I have just been advised that the child of a member of staff may have scarlet fever: What advice should I give other members of staff that they work with, in particular a pregnant member of staff ?
There should be no problem.
This is the result of strep throat.

If no one else has a sore throat, no problem.

If anyone dose have a sore throat, then immediate test for strep.
