    In August 1989, an outbreak of cryptosporidiosis was investigated at a day-care center in Georgia.

    A total of 49% (39/79) of children and 13% (3/23) of staff members who submitted stool specimens were found to be infected with Cryptosporidium.

    A total of 77% (30/39) of infected children had mild-to-moderate diarrhea.

    Children were at highest risk if they were less than age 36 months, in diapers, and not toilet trained.
