Gastroenteritis attack in Marquette County renders many sick
The Marquette County Health Department has reported a spurt in cases of diarrhea, nausea, and vomiting, which has prompted health officials to warn against a possible viral outbreak.

A common infection at this time of the year, yet officials advise caution as it appears to have taken a virulent form. It would do good to adopt perfect hygiene to offset the spread of this infection. It is important to wash hands well after the use of the washroom, and ensure usage of gloves while attending to a sick person.
