New York State Health Department Issues First Summary Report on Le Roy School Case

ALBANY, N.Y. (February 3, 2012) -- The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) released, today, the attached interim report on its investigation into a cluster of cases with tic-like symptoms in the Le Roy Central School District Junior/Senior High School.

The findings in this report do not identify a need for the school district to restrict any school-related activities or take any special health-related precautions because of this situation. The investigation did not find infectious or environmental causes for these illnesses. NYSDOH will continue to work with National Institutes of Health (NIH) to provide interested families with an independent expert third-party evaluation. Our primary concern continues to be the well-being of the affected students and their families.
