192 students and 2 staff sick with norovirus

University broadcast e-mail sent out earlier tonight:

As of 4:00 p.m. today a total of 192 patients have sought medical treatment for symptoms related to norovirus. While the vast majority of these individuals remain undergraduate students, for the first time today we became aware of that 2 employees who had been helping respond to students became ill.

Besides handwashing, the best way to “break the cycle of transmission” is to read Vox Populi’s Georgetown norovirus FAQ. Another good way is by eating at Qdoba, which did indeed open today and is still delicious.
