Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital in Charlestown has been contending with a norovirus outbreak since Tuesday afternoon. The highly contagious gastrointestinal infection has sickened 27 out of 132 inpatients, as well as eight staff within the past 48 hours.

Spaulding released a statement on Thursday noting that patients’ symptoms “are subsiding quickly and are being managed successfully.” Hospital managers have decided to postpone “non-essential visitation to the hospital as an added precaution,” but outpatient care appointments are still going on as scheduled.
