Outbreak of Stomach Ailments in Tuscola Shows Signs of Weakening
A wave of illnesses that hit dozens of students in Tuscola may be on its way out.
The superintendent in the Tuscola school district says about 36 students missed school today at North Ward Elementary School, though not all of them were affected by the stomach ailment that sent about 70 students home yesterday.
James Voyles says another ten new cases were reported today, but no students were sent home from school during the day. Douglas County Health Department officials are waiting for test results to determine what caused the stomach pains, vomiting and diarrhea in the students.
