CINCINNATI: Seniors at an assisted-living facility in Colerain Township have been asked to remain in their rooms and communal meals and activities have been suspended after about 24 residents have become ill with what’s believed to be norovirus.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports officials at Atria Northgate Park contacted the Hamilton County health department Thursday about the outbreak. Department spokesman Mike Samet says the symptoms “lead us to hypothesize” it’s norovirus, which can cause stomach pain, diarrhea and vomiting.

Samet says norovirus spreads easily and can cause serious health problems in older adults, so it’s recommended that the residents stay isolated in their rooms and not have visitors for up to a week. About 140 residents are affected.

Resident Peggy Conklin says meals are being delivered by nurses in masks.
