Yesterday in Marlin Texas a six year old student's diagnosis of Scarlet Fever was confirmed and notices were sent home to parents. Marlin Elementary School custodial staff were asked to be vigilant about disinfecting surfaces to prevent new infections. She's well enough to be cared for at home and receiving treatment.

Depicted below is a symptom of Scarlet Fever, red cheeks and paleness around the mouth.
