Looking Back to 1917: Another Quarantine

From the January 18, 2017, Midweek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

1917, 100 Years Ago.

"There is a slight case of chicken pox now at the Nashold home and for that reason the home on John Street has been placed in quarantine.  The afflicted person is not seriously sick and has but a slight case, but the quarantine law must be observed as a means of precaution.

"It  is not probable that the home will be under quarantine for long time."
