MISSOURI (KFVS) -

The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services has been notified by health providers in Jackson and Taney County of two cases of Cyclospora.

The Mo. DHSS is currently working with the Centers for Disease Control and other agencies to investigate whether or not these cases are linked to cases in other states.

At this point, they say the source of the illness has not been confirmed. Mo. DHSS will continue to provide information as it becomes available.

In the meantime, anyone experiencing gastrointestinal symptoms, including diarrhea (especially, those with prolonged symptoms), severe stomach crams or nausea, should seek medical attention.
