State Reopens Leland Lake After Virus Scare

Posted by wlpo on August 20, 2012

You can swim once again at Hi-Tide Campground in Leland.

The Illinois Department of Public Health has allowed the lake to reopen after finding no direct link between the lake and over a dozen swimmers getting a virus.  Seventeen people at a party late in July all reported getting sick and since they all swam in the lake, the state shut it down as a precaution.

The Centers for Disease Control later diagnosed 11 of the people with Adenovirus, a respiratory illness with symptoms like a common cold.
