  • <b>'Oz' rescheduled</b><br>
Grand County High School’s fall musical production of “The Wizard of Oz” was postponed due to the illness of several cast members. School and health department officials noted there have been a number of cases of pertussis among local high school and middle school students over the past few weeks, including several in the past week. The cast, pictured here during the Wednesday, Nov. 16 full dress rehearsal, was informed of the play’s postponement the following morning. All three of last week’s shows were canceled and the play’s three-night run has been rescheduled for Dec. 12, 13 and 14 (Monday through Wednesday), at 7 p.m. each night. “It is at the beginning of that week, but those are the only three dates that were open on December’s calendar,” said the show’s director Maralee Francis. “We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that the public will come and enjoy the show on the rescheduled dates, once everyone has had a chance to recuperate.” To help curtail the spread of pertussis, health department and school officials have been encouraging booster immunization shots and/or antibiotic treatments for those potentially infected or who have come into close contact with others known to have contracted pertussis, even if they are asymptomatic. For more information, see the full story on page A1 and contact your local health care provider or the Southeastern Utah Health Department at 435-259-5602.
