The Wisconsin Department of Health Services is investigating into multiple cases of adenovirus infection on college campuses.

Department officials say schools involved include UW- Madison, UW- La Crosse and UW- Oshkosh. They do not have specific numbers of students who have been or are sick.

Students and staff are urged to take precaution in order to avoid the illness. Symptoms can include respiratory illness, diarrhea, pink eye and in rare cases, inflammation of the bladder or severe neurological disease.

People with symptoms should see a doctor, stay home from work and school and practice good hygiene to avoid spreading to others, according to the department.
