It could still be a few more days before we get some results from the Oregon State Lab on the problems that occurred with visitors to Elk Lake Resort. Deschutes County Health Department's Tom Kuhn says things slowed a bit because they had to rely on the affected people. “We still don’t have all the information that we need. We’re still waiting to hear back from the State’s Lab in Portland, to find out exactly if some of the specimens match up and so forth. Oftentimes. Collecting specimens from personas who were sick is a difficult process, so it took us a little longer to get all the specimens we needed.” Kuhn says that even with the results in, there is a chance we may never know exactly what caused about 30 to 50 people to experience vomiting and diarrhea at the resort. He says there is a possibility that the cause may not have been the water, but that investigation is still ongoing.
