This report summarizes the findings of an investigation by the LFCHD and the Kentucky Department for Health Services to assess the impact of day care center attendance on communitywide shigellosis.
Despite health education efforts and follow-up by LFCHD, cases continued to occur throughout the community.
To control shigellosis, in June 1991, LFCHD created a Shigella task force that instituted a diarrhea clinic to facilitate proper diagnosis and treatment, intensified infection-control training and surveillance for shigellosis, and encouraged community-based participation in prevention efforts.
