32 cases of norovirus at Seniors Village

Two new cases of norovirus were discovered over the weekend at the Comox Valley Seniors Village, just as management was hoping things were settling down. So far 32 residents have been confirmed sick with the gastro-intestinal illness and close to 20 staff have shown at least some symptoms.

“This is the season unfortunately,” said Rowena Rizzotti, vp operations at Vancouver-based Retirement Concepts, the parent company of the Comox Valley facility. “We're feeling pretty confident we're seeing the end of it.”
