Health officials are investigating the cause of a norovirus outbreak that sickened around 30 people in the Fremont county town of Hudson. 
 
Several people reported feeling sick in may after they ate at a Hudson restaurant. Those people ate at Svilar's Bar and Dinining room. However, it can not be determined if the norovirus originated from the restaurant. The Wyoming Department of Health says the virus could have easily been carried in by a customer. 
 
A recent health inspection from the Wyoming Department of Agriculture did reveal some violations, but the restaurant's owners tell K2 News they have addressed and fixed the violations. 
 
A final report on the investigation is expected to be finished by the end of this month. It's not clear if this norovirus outbreak is also linked to last month's outbreak at Yellowstone National Park. 
 
Norovirus, also know as the "cruise ship disease," is a gastrointestinal illness that can be deadly in young children and elderly people if not treated.
