Whole Genome Sequencing (WGS)analysis did not identify antibiotic resistance in bacteria isolated from 22 ill people. Testing of three clinical isolates using standardantibiotic susceptibility testingmethods by CDC’sNational Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System(NARMS)laboratory also did not show any resistance.
