Over 80 people become ill after Norovirus spreads at a Vancouver hotel.
Vancouver Costal Health say about 40 staff members and 40 guests from the Sheraton hotel in Richmond were affected by the illness.
Norovirus is an infection of the digestive system that can cause upset stomach, vomiting or diarrhea within one to two days of exposure. Other symptoms include nausea, cramping, chills and fever.
The hotel was forced to completely shut down and remain closed.
The cause of the outbreak is still not known.
