According to WBKO Television 13 of Bowling Green, Kentucky, two Auburn Elementary School students remain hospitalized with an E. coli infection. Both of the children are reported to be in stable condition.
Doctor Srihari Sashadri of the Barren River District Health Department advises parents that, “The key thing is to monitor for any of the symptoms, like fever, abdominal pain, bloody diarrhea, nausea or vomiting. If they have any of these symptoms, we ask them to follow-up with their healthcare provider.”
Health department officials also stress that parents should make sure their children wash their hands with soap and water to help avoid illness.
The cause of the outbreak has not yet been determined; however areas used by the students have been disinfected.
