Health officials investigate illnesses connected to lake
KITSAP, Wash. (AP) — A western Washington beach has been closed indefinitely while health officials try to determine why about 120 people became ill after swimming there.
KING-TV reports in a story on Friday that the cases of gastrointestinal illnesses are linked to Horseshoe Lake near Purdy after July 28.
Kitsap Public Health District officials say the symptoms are consistent with norovirus, though the cause hasn’t been confirmed.
