State health officials caution anyone who visited the swimming pool or splashpad to monitor themselves for symptoms of an E. coli infection which include abdominal cramps and diarrhea that is sometimes bloody. These symptoms usually develop within one to three days of exposure and last about a week.
Between 5 percent and 10 percent of E. coli patients, most often young children, develop a complication called hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), a form of kidney failure. HUS symptoms usually appear about one week after initial E. coli symptoms and include pale skin, skin that easily bruises, decreased urine output, lethargy, and bloody diarrhea. Anyone with these symptoms requires immediate medical care as HUS can be fatal.
