A possible norovirus outbreak has sickened almost 40 older adults at two assisted living facilities in Sacramento, county public health officials have confirmed. One patient was sent to an emergency room.

Only three of the older adults remained ill Tuesday, says Lisa Schumann, executive director of the Carlton Plaza Sacramento and the Crown Plaza Sacramento, the two Fulton Avenue facilities where the potential outbreak occurred.
