LYNNWOOD -- An infant and a toddler from the same day care have tested positive for E. coli, though their symptoms have been mild, the Snohomish Health District and the childcare center said.
Tests are pending on two other children from Precious Child Care and Preschool for the dangerous bacterial infection.
The day care reported the first case to the health district Aug. 1. The center at 16707 13th Ave. W. in Lynnwood has been working closely with health officials to prevent any further outbreaks.
"It didn't originate at the day care center," health district spokeswoman Suzanne Pate said. "This facility has cooperated at every step of the way to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the children they look after."
