.....norovirus.....


Grand Canyon reports 118 cases of gastrointestinal illness, norovirus found in several park visitors

Multiple people tested positive for the contagious virus, which causes sudden-onset vomiting and diarrhea, Grand Canyon National Park officials said.

....Over 100 cases of gastrointestinal illness have been reported at the Grand Canyon, with cases cropping up among visitors to the Colorado River and backcountry campers, according to park officials.

The national park in northern Arizona released a gastrointestinal illness alert on May 20 citing “increasing reports” that month.

Since June 10, at least 118 cases have been reported, Joelle Baird, a public affairs specialist at the Grand Canyon National Park, told NBC News.

The symptoms are consistent with norovirus, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention describe as a contagious virus that causes vomiting and diarrhea, with symptoms including nausea, stomach cramping and pain.

Baird said some visitors have tested positive for norovirus.

Norovirus can be spread through an infected person, contaminated food and water or by touching contaminated surfaces, and causes “sudden-onset vomiting and diarrhea” that lasts between one and three days, the park service said.

“We have had positive confirmation that a number of associated river trips have tested positive for norovirus. It’s hard to say if all the cases are linked to norovirus, but we have a good understanding right now that at least in the trips that have been tested, that it’s norovirus most likely,” she said.

An initial spike in cases emerged in May, with a majority of illnesses reported in May and June......

It's weird how many parks closed during the pandemic. Like you're going to catch Covid during the 17 seconds it takes to do your business in a porta potty.

You'd be more likely to (seriously) catch the bubonic plague. This does occasionally close camp sites in the Sierras.

isn't norovirus usually poor hand hygiene causing the transmission?

Yes that's why the one cruise I have taken made everyone douse their hands in chemicals every time we exited the cabins.

is the water source/s contaminated in the Grand Canyon area then?

I don't think I read an actual source has been identified.
