Guests report feeling sick at hotel where norovirus spread

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A hotel spokeswoman says guests at Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center are reporting feeling ill.

The hotel is working with the local health department to prevent the spread of illness after a norovirus outbreak at the hotel last month.

In an email message to The Tennessean, hotel spokeswoman Jenny Barker did not say how many guests were affected (http://tnne.ws/1zB6HKv).

Barker says a number of guests have notified them that they were feeling unwell upon arrival to the hotel or during their stay.

A Jan. 26 statement from public health officials determined there was no longer a threat of illness as related to that outbreak and hotel staff followed all recommended steps to clean and sanitize the resort and convention center.
