E.coli Scare at Logan County Schools

By Ryan Dearbone | 

A possible E.coli scare has many Logan County parents concerned for their children's health.

We have been tracking this story and have the latest.

Logan County School's Superintendent Marshall Kemp has told WBKO that there has been two cases of E.coli found at Auburn Elementary School this week.

He says that since then, the school has been cleaning and scrubbing the school in order to get rid what may be causing the illness.

Kemp says school will remain open despite the illness.

Officials at the Barren River Health Dept. say parents shouldn't be alarmed, but should keep an eye on their children.

"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 health care provider," said Dr. Srihari Sashadri, with the Barren River Health Dept.

The health department also stresses the importance for parents to make sure their kids wash their hands to help avoid these symptoms.
