A norovirus outbreak at the Sauk County Health Care Center led to a quarantine on Monday. In recent weeks there have been at least three similar outbreaks in south central Wisconsin counties.
According to the CDC, noroviruses spread from person to person via contaminated food or water, and by touching contaminated surfaces.
Since Jan. 30, eight residents and about 20 employees at the Sauk County Health Care Center in Reedsburg have been struck with the virus.
A message on the facility’s website requests that no one visit the facility until further notice.
