Dear members of the campus community:
I am pleased to report that the number students reporting symptoms of norovirus, which was confirmed by laboratory testing, continue to decline dramatically. Sporadic cases are still occurring, so please remain vigilant and adhere the recommendations described in prior communications (see below).
I would like to share some epidemiologic data, which helps in planning for future health related events:
Again, although there has been a sharp reduction in the number of students who have become ill with norovirus, please continue to use behaviors that will minimize the spread of infectious diseases. These include the following tips.
We expect that as result of the many actions taken by the College and by students, this trend will continue. Thank you again for your support and teamwork.
Jeffrey Goldstein, MD FACEP
Director of Health Services
