Laboratory results still haven't returned to confirm whether four children from a kindergarten class at Sunset Park Public School contracted E. coli.

The students, all enrolled in the senior kindergarten class in the Frenchimmersion program, have been tested for the bacterial infection and remain at home.

The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit announced Wednesday they closed the class after children started to experience E. coli-like symptoms.

No new illnesses have been reported. "We want to remind everyone that

general diarrhea or seasonal illness, usually viral, is also circulating in our community," Dr. Catherine Whiting said in a release issued Friday.

"This illness can occur year-round, but it is more common in the fall and winter," she said.

The health unit and Near North District School Board are working together on the situation at Sunset Park School.

Additional cleaning staff have been assigned to the school and all affected classrooms and common areas have been cleaned.
