Norovirus Affects Residents at a Beckley Nursing Home

Posted:

BECKLEY (WVVA)- People living in a local nursing home are dealing with a strain of norovirus.

Three people living at Heartland of Beckley currently have the gastrointestinal virus. Julie Beckert, a spokesperson for the nursing home says the first signs occurred two weeks ago. 

The number of patients have been reducing every day. Beckert says, "We are confident that the steps the center has taken will help curtail the situation. Our number one priority remains the well-being of our residents."

The building is not under quarantine but, those with the illness have been separated from the group.
