Behavioral Health Center Shut Down After Scabies Outbreak

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - An outbreak of scabies at the Behavioral Health Center of Nueces County forced the building to shut down last week.

Officials said that so far, there has been no return of the highly contagious parasitic infection. Seven people were infected by the mites, which cause intense itching, after one of the clients of the rehab center reported they were itching everywhere.

Kiii News Reporter Michael Gibson looked into the outbreak and came back with the details.
