We now have 4 kids who have come down with the highly contagious Norovirus. The Norovirus infection can cause the sudden onset of severe vomiting and diarrhea. The virus is highly contagious and commonly spread through food or water that is contaminated during preparation or contaminated surfaces.
The kids that have the Norovirus are currently isolated on their unit and we’re keeping other children and staff away, due to the how contagious the virus is. Staff have been instructed by the School Doctor, to wear gloves, aprons and to use good hygiene practices. The Domestic Staff are also doing their best to keep the unit clean as possible and are making sure cleaning is stepped up.
Once the virus is contained and the kids are feeling better, Sam and the Domestics will then deep clean the unit.
Lets hope that no one else comes down with it!
