WFMY News 2 reports that the Davidson County Health Department received two reports of E. coli at Tyro Middle School.
The source in these cases is also unknown at this time.
The Health Department describes e. coli as “the naturally occurring bacteria that normally lives in the intestines of people and animals.” Most forms are harmless, but certain types can be very infectious and can easily cause illness.
Symptoms of e.coli may include diarrhea, including bloody diarrhea, vomiting, severe abdominal cramps, and low-grade fever.
If your child or an adult in the family has these symptoms, the Health Department advises you to contact your medical provider, who may consider testing.
If you have any questions, you can contact the Davidson County Health Department at 336-236-3096.
