Officials are looking into the possibility that six confirmed cases of cryptosporium are related to the recent Farmfest event in New York.
WKTV News reports the Oneida County Department of Health has advised school nurses and the administrations of all school districts who attended the event of the reported cases. There are letters going out to parents in the two schools districts that have reported cases of the disease among their students.
Oneida County officials have been in contact and consultation with the New York State Department of Health and have jointly concluded that at this time there is no ongoing public health threat.
