Possible Norovirus Outbreak Being Investigated at Stanford
Last week, Stanford University officials said that health officials are investigating a possible norovirus outbreak on campus after more than 50 students became ill, including four who were hospitalized after becoming dehydrated. The students reported having influenza-like symptoms that appeared to be in a pattern consistent with norovirus after eating at an undergraduate housing facility. The dormitory now is being sanitized, and school officials are informing dorm residents to "be vigilant about hygiene."
