ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — State health officials are investigating a pneumonia outbreak at an Albuquerque elementary school.
KOB-TV (http://bit.ly/1beMTP4 ) reports that five students at Sandia Base Elementary came down with the contagious disease at the end of September.
The students have recovered but officials are trying to determine whether it's being spread.
Dr. Joan Baumbach is deputy epidemiologist for the state Department of Health. She says investigators are looking for any common links other than the students just being close to one another.
Albuquerque Public Schools nursing director Laura Case says parents of children with symptoms such as coughing, sneezing and high temperatures should have the children's doctors evaluate them.
