Donald Trump's nomination isn't the only thing raising temperatures at the Republican National Convention--Cleveland might also be the center of a norovirus outbreak.

So far, at least 10 RNC attendees have symptoms of norovirus. Other reports have the number at a dozen.

The outbreak originated in the California delegation, several of whom have been removed from the RNC to try and keep it from spreading.

Norovirus is pretty infectious and can remain on surfaces for weeks. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, headaches, and low-grade fever.
