TWO FORKS, IDAHO is a fictional story with a scientific basis. The setting, characters and events are fictitious, and any resemblance to any person, living or dead, is purely coincidental.

For story reasons, we simplified the mystery puzzle. In real life, the medical people would have to consider more possible transmission routes for the disease than we included here.
