Stomach illness update

As many of you are likely aware a number of students, staff and faculty (around 20-25) have recently reported nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. The symptoms are characteristic of norovirus, a mild, self-limiting viral infection. The Minnesota Department of Health is investigating to determine the source of the illness.  Based on the information received so far it is very unlikely the illness is related to food served in any of the Carleton dining facilities.

Please don’t call SHAC unless you’ve had symptoms for more than 24 hours.
