WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Two New Hanover County schools are dealing with an illness that can easily spread. Parents got a call last night that students at Trask Middle School and Murrayville Elementary School have been diagnosed with Shigellosis.

Symptoms include diarrhea, fever and stomach cramps. Experts say washing hands and practicing good sanitation are key in preventing the spread of Shigella, the bacteria that causes Shigellosis.
