A quarantine remains for more than 40 people at Ridgeview lodge in Kamloops. It was put in place at the care facility because of an outbreak of Norovirus. Dr Andrew Larder is a medical health officer with Interior health. Larder says there have been a number of outbreaks but they are not actually that uncommon. He says washing your hands is key to avoiding the virus. And he says if you do get sick, drink a lot of water and avoid preparing food for anyone.
