Toronto Public Health is waiting for the results of a lab test to confirm what caused the illness. Skedline reporters are waiting to hear back from Humber officials. 680 news is reporting the school has set up a nursing station in the affected area. All open food has been thrown out and the self serve option is not available to students in North Campus cafeterias.
The illness was first noticed Thursday night when 30 students from the schools residence were taken to hospital due to abdominal pain. It was first suspected to be food poisoning but health officials began investigating the sickness and now believe it is norovirus. The results have yet to be confirmed.
Students who are sick are advised to stay home, wash hands and drink plenty of fluids. Humber has also said that as of Monday, the number of cases did not appear to be growing.
