Precautions taken after CG bus driver falls ill

A Center Grove bus driver potentially exposed students to a contagious coughing infection that is sometimes known as the 100-day cough, according to county health officials.

The Johnson County Health Department has been investigating a possible case of whooping cough at Center Grove, although it hasn’t been confirmed with tests, said county health officer Dr. Craig Moorman. He said a physician treated the bus driver for the highly contagious illness, which causes coughing, spasms and vomiting.

The bus driver’s son, a Center Grove High school student, also was treated as a precaution, Center Grove Superintendent Richard Arkanoff said. Both the bus driver and the student have been home recovering, and the district asks anyone else with symptoms to stay home, too.
