Health Department, schools react quickly to recent e-coli case
The Nevada Daily Mail reported today that Nevada R-5 Assistant Superintendent Christie Peterson said the district is working with the Vernon County Health Department to make sure that a case of e-coli in a kindergarten student and a younger sibling doesn’t spread.
The case of e-coli was confirmed Tuesday and the district went into high gear to make sure that everything was being done to contact patrons of the district to inform them of the infection and to give them some information on how to prevent its spread.
The district spent Wednesday disinfecting all surfaces of the school and has stopped having snacks in the classrooms. In addition, an Early Childhood program for about 30 3- and 4-year-olds has been temporarily suspended.
