Markon is closely monitoring a public health notice from the New York Department of Health regarding an increase in Cyclospora infections. The New York State Department of Health, working collaboratively with the Albany County Department of Health, Montgomery County Public Health, Saratoga County Public Health and Schenectady County Public Health Services, is currently investigating reports of multiple cases of Cyclosporiasis. To date, there are 11 laboratory-confirmed cases of Cyclosporiasis associated with this current investigation with illnesses starting in mid-June. Interviews with all the cases are ongoing to determine if there are commonalities in where they dined and what food they may have consumed.
