Norovirus confirmed at Camp Pepin
The Minnesota Department of Health confirmed that it was the norovirus that sickened about 30 students at Camp Pepin last week, Red Wing Family YMCA Executive Director Mike Melstad said.
The Y owns and operates the camp between Stockholm and Pepin.
A stool sample that the MDH collected from an infected child confirmed the intestinal bug.
"That confirms it came with the kids," Melstad said, adding that the virus did not originate at the camp.
