Whooping Cough in Wellington

A student at Rice Elementary in Wellington has been diagnosed with whooping cough. The student is now taking antibiotics and can’t return to school for five days. School officials can’t be sure how many others could have been infected. The state of Colorado is seeing a “record number” of people with whooping cough. Colorado recorded 976 cases between the first of the year and Sept. 29; the annual state average is roughly 180 cases.
