The agency's regional medical director Dr. Lacey Cavanaugh said there were several hundred people at the casino's most recent events. She said the agency has received at least 200 surveys from people self-reporting virus symptoms.
The casino's website directs people to the Louisiana Department of Health and its advisory about a possible outbreak. Health officials said they became aware of the outbreak after a number of people reported becoming ill at the casino. The source of it, though, is still being investigated.
"L'Auberge Lake Charles has stringent sanitation procedures in place. In addition, we are reminding guests and team members to regularly wash their hands and take other health safety precautions," the casino stated on its website.
