Five more cases of norovirus have been reported at the Pyeongchang Olympics, bringing the total confirmed cases to 199 since the beginning of the month.
Of the new cases reported Tuesday, two are in Pyeongchang and two are in Gangneung, the South Korean city where ice sports are taking place.
Authorities say 154 of those affected have recovered and been released from quarantine.
Earlier in the Olympics, about 1,200 security workers were sequestered over norovirus fears, forcing the military to step in to help with security.
Norovirus is a common, infectious bug that causes symptoms including diarrhea and vomiting but doesn't require medical treatment.
There are signs all over the Olympics reminding people to wash their hands and use hand sanitizer.

The German star is now the two-time Olympic champion, after finishing off the historic win at the Pyeongchang Games. Germany's Dajana Eitberger was second and Alex Gough earn bronze, giving Canada its first Olympic luge medal.
Geisenberger becomes the third woman to win consecutive Olympic golds, joining fellow German stars Steffi Martin Walter and Sylke Otto. She also becomes the first woman to win three Olympic luge golds, the two singles races added to the team relay victory at Sochi in 2014.
Erin Hamlin of the U.S. was sixth. Summer Britcher was 19th and Emily Sweeney crashed out midway through her final run. She was being evaluated but a preliminary assessment indicated she may have avoided serious injury.
