Norovirus Outbreak at Olympics


At least 32 Olympic employees are being quarantined and treated for Norovirus in Pyeongchang.

Norovirus, sometimes referred to as the winter vomiting bug, is the most common cause of gastroenteritis. Infection is characterized by diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach pain. Blood is not usually present. Fever or headaches may also occur.

Officials have posted signs around the venue urging people to exercise cautions to prevent the illness from spreading.

Organizers have ordered 1,200 people to remain in their rooms.
