College Officials Continue to Monitor Campus Health
Statement by Nick Piccolo, Vice President for Student Life
9:45 a.m. Friday, Nov. 14
"We continue to talk with resident hall assistants and the Health Center to assess the number of students who are reporting health issues. Over the past 24 hours, 11 additional students have contacted us with stomach virus symptoms, raising the campus total to 37 students reporting that they have had or are currently experiencing stomach virus symptoms since last weekend. We thank those students who have responded, and we continue to encourage students to contact their RA if they develop symptoms.
"We will continue to monitor the health status of the campus and communicate with County health department officials. As of yesterday afternoon, County health department officials requested that we survey students who have reported that they have had or are currently experiencing stomach virus symptoms. Students who have reported symptoms to the Health Center will be contacted about completing a survey. While County health officials are 'not convinced this is Noro,' additional information would be valuable to the County and the College.
"In the meantime, please take the precautions we have shared earlier and have a healthy and safe weekend."
