Shigellosis is an infectious disease caused by a group of bacteria called Shigella. The Winnebago County Health Department announced a health alert earlier this school year about the disease.
To learn more about shigellosis, visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the Winnebago County Health Department website.
