Norovirus outbreak in multiple Utah Long-term Care Facilities
May 27, 2021 11:26 PM
Utah, United States
KLTV reports that Health departments in Utah and Salt Lake counties confirmed recent outbreaks of norovirus or a similar gastrointestinal illness in several long-term care facilities.
According to the news, Jennifer Hatfield an epidemiology investigator and nurse with the Utah County Health Department said that the Utah County outbreak of norovirus included five care facilities and occurred from late March through April. A total of 288 cases were reported, 4 people had to be hospitalized and 1 person died. Of those cases, 156 were residents of those facilities and 132 were employees.
Norovirus is very contagious and is easily transmitted from person to person most through the oral/fecal route.
Considering that hand sanitizer does NOT work against this virus, it is important to wash your hands with soap frequently. Use bleach to clean and disinfect surfaces.
In case you experience vomiting, diarrhea, and nausea, report it now. It can help to detect & resolve outbreaks early and prevent others from being harmed, and it enables better surveillance.

“I ordered a Tuna Melt on white bread, came with French fries and a slice of Almond Joy cake on May 30, 2021. This was all I ate that day. The crust of the cake tasted bitter like alcohol. I don't drink because I can't stand the taste. I initially thought it might have been part of the recipe, but a... friend said any alcohol used in cooking evaporates and I should not have tasted the bitterness. The order was from this Cafe. It was delivered through Doordash. I reported this to them, but I want to make sure the restaurant knows.
I ate the mean around 6 pm and grazed the cake slice for a few hours. It was not cold when delivered and I think they refrigerate their cakes. They're famous for their large portions and their cakes are huge.
I woke up in the middle of the night with extreme nausea. I vomited a few times, went downstairs to get some medicine to help, and ended up vomiting violently all over my living room. This started at 3 am. I called 911 at 9 and spent the day at Erlanger East Hospital. I did leave against medical advice at 7 pm. They wanted to admit me because my oxygen levels were low. I have asthma. The concern was I may have aspirated while vomiting. I promised to return if I felt I couldn't breathe.
My main concern was that I had been vomiting from 3 am until about 11 am. It took several different IV medications to stop the nausea and vomiting. ”
