    • Description:
      Shigellosis is a highly contagious diarrheal disease caused by a group of bacteria called Shigella. Outbreaks of Shigella infection can occur from environmental, food, water, or person-to-person exposure (see References section). Anyone can get sick from Shigella infection. However, groups that may be at particular risk include children, travelers, men who have sex with men, and people with weakened immune systems. Shigella bacteria have increasing rates of antimicrobial resistance both in the United States43 and globally.

      The information in this toolkit is intended to help state and local health departments respond to suspected or confirmed cases, clusters, or outbreaks of Shigella infection.

      These materials include information on:

      • Data collection

      • Responding to an outbreak of Shigella infection

      • Sanitation, hygiene, and cleaning

      • Fact sheets, palm cards, and letter templates to aid communications with the public, including materials specific to key populations
