Delco hospital reports outbreak of norovirus

Taylor Hospital in Ridley Park, Delaware County, is asking people not to visit loved ones there.

That's because they are trying to stop an outbreak of norovirus, a common stomach bug.

The hospital says earlier this month it had some cases in its in-patient rehabilitation unit.

Then, workers there noticed people in other units were getting sick.

Hospital officials say they won't stop visitors, but they will have to wear gowns, masks, and gloves in the building.

The restrictions should only last a few days.
