You have only to look at the pictures (we don’t have ’em) to know that a good time was had by all at this year’s Oregon Country Fair, held earlier this month near Eugene. However, at least eight people left with something not so nice as a way to remember the free-living fair.
These are the folks who went away with Shigella, according to KGW-8 in Portland.
Health officials started with two confirmed cases of Shigella, but have since seen the number increase to eight. They want to hear from others that might be part of this outbreak. According to KGW:
To be considered part of the outbreak, people had to have been sick with diarrhea lasting more than 48 hours, attended the fair between July 10-13 and fallen ill between one and four days after attending the fair.
