The Toledo-Lucas County Health Department has determined there is no measles case in the Sylvania school system.
Late last week a child at Stranahan Elementary was suspected of having the measles, but test results are negative, the health department said Tuesday.
Family members of the student involved said it was not a case of the measles, and only an allergic reaction to medicine.
The health department and district had to follow safety protocols since a case was suspected.
Sylvania School Superintendent Adam Fineske sent a letter to parents Tuesday afternoon regarding the test results.
"We wanted to reach out to you as soon as we could to let you know that we just received very good news from The Lucas County Health Department. We have been officially notified that the test results for the suspected measles case with a student at Stranahan Elementary School from last week came in and are negative," Fineske said. "At this time, we know of no other possible or confirmed cases of the measles in our community or the surrounding area. If you have any specific concerns about the measles, we urge you to contact your pediatrician."
When the case was suspected, the school had asked parents to check for symptoms of the illness, including coughing, runny nose and a rash that begins at the hairline and spreads down from the face and neck to the rest of the body.
The measles rash doesn't usually appear until about 14 days after exposure, two to three days after the fever begins, the letter to parents said.
"Should your child exhibit any of these symptoms while attending school, it is recommended that the child be sent home as a precautionary measure. It is our responsibility to protect our children and take all steps necessary to prevent the spread of diseases in our school systems," a letter sent last week said.
At the time, Fineske said the notice was made out of an abundance of caution.
"The health and well being of our kids is our top priority. We have taken all of the necessary precautions as directed by The Health Department. At this time, we are not aware of any other potential cases of the measles in our community," Fineske wrote.
Schools in Ohio are required to ensure that children receive the measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR) vaccine unless exempted.
"If your child is not up to-date or is in need of the MMR vaccine, please contact your family doctor," health department officials said last week. "Measles is a very contagious, vaccine-preventable disease. The MMR vaccine has been proven highly effective at preventing the transmission of measles. One dose of MMR vaccine is approximately 93% effective at preventing measles and two doses are approximately 97% effective."
