Am I just completely ignorant? Why is this suddenly happening? We NEVER saw this sort of thing in the years past. More awareness? Understanding? I just don't get it.
Three children have fallen ill as a result of E.coli after they swam at beaches on Lake Nokomis in Minneapolis.
Both the 50th Street and Main beaches at the southeast Minneapolis lake have been closed until further notice after health officials became aware of the illnesses, which came after the children swam in the lake between July 26 and August 2.
Minneapolis Parks and Recreation took the decision on the advice of the Minnesota Department of Health, with the children showing symptoms of a strain of Shiga toxin-producing E.Coli between Aug. 2 and 5.
