Probable pertussis case on Gainesville campus

We at Brenau are committed to the health of our community. Out of an abundance of caution and a commitment to your health and safety, we are alerting you to the possibility of a probable case of pertussis (whooping cough) at Brenau University’s Gainesville campus beginning the week of Aug. 16. We have identified a group that was directly exposed to the initial carrier, and we are in communication directly with that group. For more information visit
