E. coli Outbreak at Huntley High School, Illinois
2 months ago
13719 Harmony Road, Huntley, 60142 Illinois, United States
The McHenry County Department of Health (MCDH) and Huntley Community School District 158 announced the investigation of a recent outbreak of Shiga Toxin-Producing E. coli (STEC) at Huntley High School. There have been six confirmed cases of STEC, all involving students. The initial case was detected on Sunday, September 17. To date, the origin of the illnesses is unknown. The MCDH is overseeing the situation for potential cases; no other STEC cases are known in McHenry County outside of this outbreak.
Officials from Huntley High School are collaborating with the MCDH, continuing their examination of possible exposures both inside and outside the school, since the source of the outbreak remains unidentified. Due to E. coli's highly contagious characteristics, students are urged to wash their hands regularly. The school has also adopted preemptive steps to maintain a secure environment, such as displaying handwashing signs around the school and installing hand sanitizer stations in every classroom and communal area.
To prevent and stop the spread of infection, the MCDH recommends washing hands with soap and water when preparing and eating food, having contact with animals or their environment, and after bathroom use or changing a diaper; avoiding swallowing water from ponds, lakes, and untreated swimming pools; and washing and cooking foods properly and avoid unpasteurized (raw) dairy products and juices. Those infected should not handle, prepare, or cook food for others until 48 hours after symptoms have resolved.
In case you are experiencing E. coli symptoms such as watery diarrhea (often bloody), vomiting; stomach cramps; and mild fever, it is important to report it. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance. If symptoms persist, seek medical care.
Sunday November 26, 2023 I ordered a two beef enchilada combo for myself, and a single shredded chicken enchilada for my 87 year old mother. Tuesday morning November 28, I was awoken by my mother who was extremely ill. She had diarrhea, and was vomiting, and almost... passed out. As I was trying to assist her, I got real sweaty, and had to use the toilet where I had a little diarrhea myself, but felt better afterwards. My mother however did not. Ended up having to call 911, a trip by ambulance to the ER. She was diagnosed with Clostridioides difficile (infection of the colon), acute pancreatitis. C. difficile is transmitted through contaminated food from an infected person. You can also get it from taking certain antibiotics, which she has not taken any. The evening prior to this, my stomach was making all kinds of strange noises. At that time, I didn't feel that bad. As a result, my mother has been severely sick for several days, will now have a huge medical bill, and I've lost two days work caring for her 24 hours a day. Never eating there again. | Symptoms: Nausea, Diarrhea, Vomiting, Sweating
