RENO — County health officials say they have not determined the source of a norovirus outbreak that sickened dozens of members of a wedding party and others at a Reno casino last week.
About 40 members of the wedding party from California reported gastrointestinal distress and symptoms of norovirus at the Peppermill Resort, Spa and Casino beginning on June 28, Washoe County Health Department spokeswoman Judy Davis said.
Davis said it would be difficult to determine whether the highly contagious virus was spread by a member of the Peppermill’s staff, one of the members of the wedding party or another visitor to the casino.
Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramping. Symptoms typically last one or two days.
