One more crypto case confirmed in North Shore communities

WHITEFISH BAY -- The North Shore Health Department has confirmed two new cryptosporidium cases, bringing the total to 21 confirmed cases.


 

Health officials ask that citizens wash their hands, especially after using the toilet and changing a diaper.

 

According to health officials, anyone who has experienced diarrhea should not swim for a minimum of 14 days after their last episode. We're told everytime an infected person swims in a pool, the pool must be closed and treated. The North Shore Health Department is working closely with local pools, schools and daycares to prevent the spread of the parasite.

 

If you are sick with diarrhea and are concerned you may have crypto, contact your doctor or local health department. 

 

The North Shore Water Commission and Treatment Plant confirms the drinking water is safe.
