The next step in your investigation is developing a hypothesis. A hypothesis is simply a suspicion of how the EATC residents became ill. When creating hypotheses consider all the facts you know about the illness (agent), the possible conditions (environment) the agent must have to become infectious, and who (host) is at risk for the disease. Also consider the potential time of exposure to the disease, the place in which exposure could have occurred and who could have been exposed. The next step in the investigation is to evaluate your hypothesis so the more specific and factual your hypothesis the more likely your evaluation will be useful.
