HURON TOWNSHIP -- Health authorities say there is more evidence that tainted food and perhaps a sick cafeteria worker may be to blame for an outbreak of norovirus earlier this month among guests at the Sawmill Creek resort.
Erie County Environmental Health Director Bob England says tests have found some lunch meat was contaminated with fecal bacteria and that contamination points to Norovirus being involved.
The virus is spread both person-to-person and through contaminated food or water.
Most of those catching the virus were workers there or guests attending a global health conference at the resort earlier this month.
A total of 99 cases of suspected Norovirus have been reported. Some involved guests staying at the resort both before and after the conference. Others came from outside the resort.
England says the outbreak seems to have slowed.
The advice to all in the Erie County area is the same as that to the population at large -- stay away from sick people and carefully wash your hands.
