State fisheries officials have closed shellfish beds in Wellfleet after an outbreak of norovirus sickened about 75 people. The 16th annual OysterFest is this weekend, and it’s an event that draws upwards of 20,000 people.

Michele Insley of SPAT, the event’s organizing group, discusses what the closure means for OysterFest, with WCAI’s Morning Edition co-host Kathryn Eident.
