CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Cuyahoga County health officials are interviewing students who became sick while on an annual field trip to Washington, D.C.

More than 250 eighth-grade students from Olmsted Falls Middle School visited D.C. between April 3 and April 5.

Several of the students reported feeling over the course of the trip.

The school staff and chaperones provided care to the students while in Washington, D.C.

The final dinner stop on the way home was ended prematurely, but all other scheduled activities went off as scheduled.

Officials from the Cuyahoga County Board of Health are still collecting evidence that could determine the source of the sicknesses.
