Nevada Prison Linked to E. coli Outbreak
Besides the confirmed case at the prison about 100 miles northeast of Reno, there are two suspected cases of E. coli being examined, the department said in a news release.
Corrections officials contacted the state’s Division of Public and Behavioral Health to investigate the cause and sent samples to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for testing, the release said.
“No other inmates or anyone in the general public have been reported as showing symptoms of or have been suspected of having E. coli in Nevada,” the release said.
