Foodborne Illness Outbreak

The Skokie Health Department is currently investigating an outbreak of Cyclosporiasis, a foodborne, diarrheal illness caused by the Cyclospora parasite. All cases currently involve individuals who attended a July 3, 2018 event at the Evanston Golf Club, 4401 Dempster Street, Skokie, which is fully cooperating with the investigation. Symptoms of the disease usually begin six to seven days after exposure and can include frequent bouts of watery diarrhea, nausea, loss of appetite, low-grade fever, fatigue and headaches. It is important that anyone who attended this event and developed any of these symptoms contact their health care provider for testing and treatment with antibiotics. It also is important that all people who attended the event complete the food survey they were sent to help determine what food might be linked to the outbreak.  At present, this outbreak appears to be contained to individuals who attended the July 3, 2018 event with no connection to any other foodborne illness outbreaks in Illinois. For more information, please call the Skokie Health Department at 847-933-8252 or email info@skokie.org.
