The county’s health officials are still investigating the case and the person is recovering at home under professional medical care.
CNN reports “symptoms of plague often appear within two weeks of exposure and can include fever, nausea, weakness and swollen lymph nodes, according to the release. Treatment with antibiotics can be effective if an infectious disease is detected early enough.”
