CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — A central Illinois day care worker has developed monkeypox but it has not spread to others at the center, public health officials said Friday.

The worker at the unidentified day care in the village of Rantoul was in isolation and doing well, officials said. Screening of children, other workers and their close contacts was underway, The (Champaign) News-Gazette reported.

“We hope there are no kid cases,” said Julie Pryde, director of the Champaign-Urbana Public Health District. “But for all we know, the employee could have gotten it from a kid.”

The Rantoul case is Illinois’ first monkeypox case linked to a day care, Illinois Department of Public Health spokeswoman Lauri Sanders said. The monkeypox virus spreads through prolonged skin-to-skin contact.

The Campaign-Urbana Public Health District learned of the case Thursday. It’s the third monkeypox case so far in Champaign County.

The local agency has enough vaccine to administer to anyone connected to the day care center who wants it, Pryde said. She said the agency also has access to medication for monkeypox, which may cause fever, body aches, chills, fatigue and pimple-like bumps on many parts of the body.

Rantoul is 110 miles (177 kilometers) south of Chicago.

Tragic Lorena died shortly after birth on July 8 ­following complications.

Charles Drury, who denies attacking Lauren, has been bailed on suspicion of assaulting her after their baby’s funeral.

Her sister Nicola shared a snap of Lauren's daughter Larose and said: "This gorgeous little girl doesn't even know how lucky she is to have such a strong amazing mum! As long as you have each other you'll both be fine."

Sharing the post to her followers, Lauren's close pal Lauryn Goodman admitted she breaks down in tears every time she sees her horrific injuries.

Lauryn said: "Couldn't have said this better myself.

"Seen a few things as well and I'd like to say there are NEVER 2 sides to a story when my friend's face looks how it does. She is unrecognisable.

"Brings me to tears every time I look at her.

"No amount of lies you tell will ever hide the truth now.

"Please if anyone ever finds themselves in this situation never think staying quiet or hiding is best.

"Always confide and reach out to people.

"Better days will come and you aren't trapped. Promise. Be strong for your little ones."

Lauren has been left devastated by the death of her newborn daughter last month.

Ten doctors battled to save the 9lb mite who had a strong heartbeat before Lauren’s contractions began.

Drury, who denies the attack in Upminster, Essex, was held all day by police in East London before being released on bail at 3am last Friday.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: “Lauren is absolutely terrified. This has shaken her badly.

“She suffered some nasty injuries and fears she has suffered a broken eye socket."

The source added: “Lauren is now in hiding with a friend. She’s really stressed that Charlie’s bail conditions have not specified that he’s kept out of the Essex area.

“She doesn’t want him to be allowed to set foot in Essex.

"She is very shaken by this situation.”
