Sickness in area schools not trackable, but not unusual

Posted: Updated:
BLACK HAWK COUNTY (KWWL) -

While some ailment appears to be going around area schools and workplaces, Black Hawk County Health officials say they can't track whatever it is and the ailment does not appear to be impacting an unusual amount of students right now.

Black Hawk County Health Division Manager John McNamee says the county has no data on the ailment because the department is not notified of certain diseases like upper respiratory disease or the Enterovirus.

McNamee says the number of school absentees are not unusual right now, but he doesn't have specific numbers.
