HENRY COUNTY, OH (Toledo News Now) -
Efforts are underway to
keep track of illnesses going around Henry County schools. All it takes are a
few clicks online from school administrators.
It's a newly-designed
website called "SUDS" – Schools United in Disease Surveillance.
When parents call the school to report their child is sick, they have an option
of reporting the symptoms their child is experiencing. The school then reports
all those symptoms through the SUDS website, and the health department compiles
the information in real time.
"When we see these trends
increasing, we can get communication out to our schools so they can put out
some prevention messages to teachers to make sure students are washing their
hands good, covering their coughs," said Mark Eckhart, public health
epidemiologist. "We can try and stop the spread of disease."
The program started in
Defiance County, but has been so successful, it's now being used by several
schools in Henry County. Those who created the website hope it catches on with
even more schools.
