Quarantine Release Cards

Back before many childhood diseases could be prevented by vaccines, people were issued quarantine release cards when the disease was gone. Here are my mumps and chickenpox quarantine release cards.

My mom, ever the rule-follower, kept these cards as instructed.

It looks like we changed addresses (262 Hine and 240 Heine) but the house number changed after we became part of the city and the person who typed the first address misspelled it.

I remember both illnesses. The mumps prevented a shared family vacation with friends. The chicken pox just itched.
