    SANDUSKY, Ohio - UPDATE 10:30 a.m.

    Erie County Health Commissioner Peter Schade said there are 13 confirmed cases of the norovirus among the California RNC Logistical Support Team.

    Schade said there have been no new cases in the last 36 hours. The California RNC Logistical Support Team has been very good with hygiene, he said, and the Kalahari Resort has been great with being trained and prepared for such an event.

    According to Schade, three fecal samples sent out to Columbus to be tested were confirmed to have the norovirus.
