Health officials have more on their plate than COVID-19 as they investigate potential foodborne illnesses

The source and cause of the illnesses have not been determined, and so far there’s no connection to university dining facilities, ISU officials said. “The MCHD Communicable Disease Division works with the doctors and hospitals who are treating the ill patients to question and collect any biological samples provided from patients who cooperate, and sends those samples to Illinois Department of Public Health labs to narrow down the type of illness,” said Manko.

“The MCHD and Illinois State University have a strong history of collaborating to identify sources of illness, and taking immediate action to ensure future safety,” Manko also said. Source

“The MCHD and Illinois State University have a strong history of collaborating to identify sources of illness, and taking immediate action to ensure future safety,” Manko said.

Anyone suspecting they have a foodborne illness is encouraged to call the county health department. Members of the ISU and Bloomington-Normal communities have become ill, but the source of the outbreak is not connected to food prepared at on-campus residential or retail dining facilities, said university spokesperson Eric Jome.
