I agree - the symptoms were classic for Norovirus, not H1N1, and why this was made into a "mystery" illness when this virus is widespread in assisted living facilities. Reporters are not doctors, but any nurse or administrator could have told the reporter this. So could someone from public health.

Marin IJ reporters are the laziest on earth.
