USA – Norovirus reported at Pepperdine University

Outbreak News Today Norwalk_Caspid

According to a report on the Pepperdine Graphic, an email was sent out to the campus last week concerning a confirmed norovirus case at the school.

We are aware of a few students who have had stomach/intestinal symptoms, but only one that has been officially diagnosed,” the Student Health Center wrote in an email. “Various viruses, bacteria and other diseases can cause gastrointestinal illnesses so someone with symptoms doesn’t necessarily have Norovirus.”

“In any community, including Pepperdine, it could potentially spread,” the email stated.
