The Department of Health recently released a secondary, “follow-up” report that took place on September 24th for the Leo J. O’Donovan Dining Hall.

Epicurean, Leo’s, The Tombs, and Bangkok Bistro were high-risk violators of D.C. health code in 2009

A couple of weeks ago, Vox got the Freedom of Information Act itch and decided to FOIA the Food Establishment Inspection Reports of some local restaurants.

No new Catholic University norovirus cases since Weds., 36 ill in total

We last left our friends at Catholic by the toilet, but according to the Washington Post, the last reported case of norovirus was Wednesday. The D.C.

Wisey’s continues to violate health code

Remember the health inspection report that told Wisey’s not to prop open its door because that’s unsanitary? Apparently, neither do they.

They misunderestimated you, norovirus

So it looks like the University won’t be helping students who were infected with the norovirus pay their medical bills. On Monday, VP of Student Affairs Todd Olson also told reporters that the university was unlikely even to reimburse students for their meal plan, which is so not cool. But as the D.C. Department of […]

The Georgetown Norovirus FAQ

Didn’t even buy a meal plan There’s been a lot of information about the Georgetown norovirus outbreak on Vox Populi and elsewhere, including the Hoya and Todd Olson’s Xanga. It’s all become a blizzard of words, though, and that’s no good when you just want to stay healthy. So here, all in one place and […]

“Handwashing is going to be our mantra”: Georgetown press conference on the norovirus

Editor’s note: Before the Georgetown norovirus info session, the University held a press conference about the norovirus. Molly’s explanation is a lot more coherent than what I did at the info session and has some new information. Still, we’ll summarize all the important stuff later in the evening. At a press conference in Riggs library, […]
