CLEVELAND (KCBS) Members of the California delegation at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland have fallen sick with the norovirus, a highly contagious stomach bug that causes diarrhea and vomiting.
KCBS reporter Doug Sovern first tweeted the news of the outbreak Tuesday.
About a dozen in CA delegation felled by norovirus now, moving them offsite as a precaution to keep from spreading. #RNCinCLE (I feel fine)

Sovern said the outbreak started among some members of the delegation on Sunday and spread to more than a dozen members.

The virus is transmitted by fecally contaminated food or water, by person-to-person contact and via aerosolization of vomited virus and subsequent contamination of surfaces.
Come on. You’re all thinking the same thing I am.
Watch where and what you eat, republicans. The left will slip you a disease if they think they can.
Well thats pretty shitty...Were they poisoned by a disgrunteld BLM restaurant/hotel worker?
I hope they get well soon...
Fake story. There are no Republicans in California.
Probably just another amazing coincidence, of course.
Everyone is quietly thinking, would the extreme left intentionally sabotage the convention in a manner such as this?
I was thinking, Calif, lots of latinos from countries with poor/little clean water, so they’re just not used to the whole hygiene thing? Does that make me a bad person?
They need to look at the hotel where the delegation is staying. The norovirus is fairly common as are outbreaks on cruise ships and resorts. Pretty tough to intentionally infect someone with this. I’ve had this virus several times and it is brutal. These guys could be down for the count for at least a couple of days.
"Farm workers have intimate contact with the fruits and vegetables as they harvest, sort and pack these foods, so worker health and hygiene becomes a matter of concern. Pathogenic organisms of human health significance including Salmonella species, E.coli O157:H7, Shigella, Cryptosporidium, Cyclospora, Hepatitis A, and Norovirus associated with infected farm workers, have been implicated in outbreaks involving strawberries, green onions, raspberries, tomatoes, leaf lettuce, basil, parsley and other produce items."
Ya, thank gawd all that is strictly isolated to CA. Everyone is is perfectly safe.☺
I read somewhere here yesterday that there was some Muslim handing out chewing gum to delegates?

Impossible! Neither would I cast any aspersions towards Cruziites, Bushiites, and any other assorted iites.
