Ah, Overland Park, the Richie Rich part of Kansas City.


Given that norovirus has about a six-hour onset, maybe those rich folk should demand a quicker public notification than 10 days, with over 100 people sick.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment and the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment are looking into an outbreak of norovirus infection among people who became ill after attending a performance at the New Theater Restaurant in Overland Park earlier this month.

More than 100 people who attended one of the two performances on Jan. 17 have reported illnesses, and four have laboratory specimens to confirm norovirus.
