MILWAUKEE - The North Shore Health Department confirmed another new case of the Cryptosporidium virus on Tuesday, bringing the total within their jurisdiction to 20.

An official said in a statement that the case comes from "recreational water facilities during the month of September."

The department calls it the only new case since Monday, Oct. 7.

The Jewish Community Center recently re-opened in Whitefish Bay as the number of cases had declined.
