More than 20 people at a Lexington senior living center are trying to fight off a strange illness.

The Fayette County Health Department says 22 people at Hartland Hills, off Tanbark Road, have symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea.

The first reports came in Wednesday. Health officials are still trying to figure out what caused the illness.

The health department has asked sick residents to stay in their rooms until Saturday, while employees at Hartland Hills disinfect the kitchen and test food.

Hartland Hills officials tell us they've notified families, and they will not discuss the issue any further.
