Health Department Still Investigating Outbreak

By  | 

It's still not clear what made some 40 people sick. Staff at the Jackson County Health Department is waiting on lab results to identify the organism. It's unknown if the illness is viral or bacterial.

Ron Grimes, Director of the Health Department, says all of the people reporting the sickness work at the same business. Grimes is not identifying the business, but he says it's not in the city of Jackson.

Lab results are expected by the end of the week.
