A day care in Quincy, Massachusetts, where a child was recently diagnosed with typhoid fever is expected to reopen on Tuesday.
Last week, officials with the state Department of Public Health confirmed that the child who attends the Bright Horizons Daycare and preschool at 1 Enterprise Drive in North Quincy had the disease.
Health officials said because teachers must have three negative test results before they can return to work, substitute teachers will be brought into the facility on Tuesday.
Children who attend the day care must also present a negative test result to be allowed back to class.
Health officials said the testing takes up to three days.
A spokesperson for Bright Horizons said the day care was notified about the typhoid diagnosis last Tuesday. The facility was closed the following day.
Day care officials don't believe the child contracted typhoid at Bright Horizons, as the child recently traveled abroad.
