Day care with E. coli outbreak still closed

A Vancouver, Wash., day care center remains closed after a deadly outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 killed a 4-year-old boy and sickened three other children.

Turns out the Fletch Family Daycare was closed on April 2 but decided to go ahead and still care for a child.

The center won’t be allowed to reopen – even if health officials clear it – until the state completes its investigation.

An owner said the boy who showed up at the center after it was closed was there for only a short time and there was no risk to him.

Except if investigators don’t know where the E. coli came from, who knows if there was a risk to the kid or not. Why do people say such things?
