There’s nothing like a good Norovirus outbreak to ruin a summer vacation. That’s what they are finding out this weekend at the Windmill Run Marina on Oklahoma’s popular Grand Lake.
News OK tonight has this report:
The Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality issued an emergency order Friday for a condo complex on Grand Lake to shut down its water system because several dozen people have become sick since June.
At least 62 people have had flu-like symptoms associated with a Norovirus, which the DEQ says was caused because sewage contaminated a drinking water well at the Windmill Run Marina, on the east side of the lake.
The emergency shutdown follows a July 8 order that all water from the Windmill Run condos be boiled before drinking because the state found E. coli in the drinking water.
The DEQ is continuing its investigation. Go here for more.
