Casper Natrona County Health Department is investigating the source of multiple people becoming ill. 

After only 24 hours into their investigation, the source still remains unknown. 

The health department says it could takes weeks before they figure it out. 

12 people have been interviewed thus far who sought medical attention. 

The health department is trying to figure out if there is a pattern between these cases. 

Bob Harrington says the it's too early in the process to even say if this is a food bourne illness that has caused these people to seek medical attention. 

With flu season upon us, he said that could be a possibility. 

The best advice he could give, wash your hands, wash your hands, and when you are done wash them again.
