Yosemite National Park says 170 people ill in possible norovirus outbreak

Roughly 170 people who have visited California’s Yosemite national park in recent weeks have suffered upset stomachs and diarrhea, symptoms that park authorities say are consistent with norovirus. Norovirus is highly contagious and can be spread through direct contact with an infected person. The park is undertaking ’extensive cleaning and enhanced sanitation protocols’ to address the outbreak.

The federal government oversees operations of the concessions in the park. In its typical fashion, it's doing a crap job and nobody will be held accountable.

Possible cause: when Trump shut down government, and people were left without adequate sanitation measures during his "crazed" stance!
