A bacterial infection has spread to Taylor County.
Last week, the infection spread to the Taylor County School System when a child at Taylor County Elementary School was diagnosed with shigellosis.
Amy Tomlinson, public health services coordinator for the Lake Cumberland District Health Department, says Taylor and Marion counties have seen an increase in cases of shigellosis in the past few months.
“The symptoms of shigellosis may include diarrhea, abdominal cramping, fever, nausea and vomiting,” she said.
