Health officials say a viral outbreak that led to quarantine at the House of Charity in Spokane is confirmed to be norovirus.
Patrons who have visited the shelter since Thursday are being urged to return there in order to help limit the spread of the disease.
The Spokane Regional Health District is also stressing the importance of personal hygiene and frequent hand-washing.
Officials with Catholic Charities, which runs House of Charity, say staff and physicians working at the shelter are "getting ahead" of the norovirus outbreak.
