130 inmates fall ill at Stateville prison in Joliet
December 27, 2012 (JOLIET, Ill.) -- Illinois health officials are trying to figure out the source of a flu-like illness that has made about 130 inmates ill at Stateville prison in Joliet.
Corrections officers quarantined two minimum security units this week to keep the illness from spreading.
Official suspects it's a norovirus, which causes flu-like symptoms, is highly contagious and can spread easily from person to person.
