    TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Seven clusters of Norovirus found in assisted-living homes for seniors have authorities in southern Arizona warning the public about the sometimes fatal flu-like illness.

    The Pima County Health Department is warning the public to be vigilant about washing their hands, keeping common areas disinfected and staying home if they're sick.
    ...
    They say Norovirus is not uncommon in such homes but that it's rare to see so many different clusters at the same time.

    Norovirus back in Canyon?

    CYNDY COLE Sun Staff Reporter | Posted: Thursday, June 14, 2012 9:00 am

    Two river-running companies have reported trips in the Grand Canyon characterized by nausea, vomiting and diarrhea -- the typical hallmarks of norovirus.

    A boating trip leaving the river on June 7 said all but two of its crew were hit.

    Another company reported some of the same symptoms in May.

    Coconino County health workers are sampling latrines and other waste for norovirus (results aren't in yet).

    Boaters are emailing one another warnings to be diligent in purifying water and having all aboard wash hands.
