E. coli Breakout at Day Care Center

Posted In Day Care, Illness

You never want an article about your day care center to begin, "Twenty-one children and one adult have contracted E. coli." You particularly don't want it to note that the outbreak was "linked to a lack of handwashing."

At least the day care has taken responsibility for sanitizing the center, and is trying to reimburse parents for out-of-pocket medical costs and expenses of having to stay home with their children. Even if it were only a PR move, it would still be the right thing to do.
