I'm guessing, since some of the infected got it two days before, that there's only so many motels, diners and convenience stores on the roads approaching where these tourists enter the park, and one or more of those places is a source, they probably have some logistical commonality like the same supplier of certain items.

"Moreover, at least five people reported that their symptoms began more than 24 hours before their trip to the canyon. "

That's a hangin'.

I won a math debate: When you're visiting a crack
And there's rumbling at your back
Diarrhea

I'm thinking that it's time to upgrade to one of those very expensive water filters that can remove viruses.

I also didn't realize that hand sanitizer doesn't kill norovirus. Good to know.
