Posted: Thursday, June 19, 2008

JUNEAU - A Bartlett Regional Hospital official said Wednesday that an e-mail wrongly claimed an outbreak of the Norwalk virus in downtown.

Infection Control Officer Jan Beauchamp said Bartlett has not seen an increase in patients presenting with gastrointestinal issues or had any confirmed cases of Norovirus.

The hospital did not treat 30 people on Tuesday, June 17, as indicated in the e-mail.
