FOX NEWS/A rare brain infection has led Iowa officials to close a Taylor County beach.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources said the temporary closure is a precautionary response to a confirmed infection of Naegleria fowleri in a Missouri resident who had recent potential exposure while swimming at the beach at Lake of Three Fires State Park.

Testing to confirm the presence of the “brain-eating amoeba” is being conducted in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and could take several days to complete.
