Here’s a health advisory regarding the recent norovirus outbreaks at Mount Allison University and St. Francis Xavier University:

“As most members of our campus community are aware, Mount Allison University dealt with an outbreak of the Norwalk virus last week, and St. Francis Xavier University is currently dealing with a suspected Norwalk-like virus on campus. As of noon today, there were no reported cases of anyone at UPEI showing symptoms of this virus. UPEI is being proactive in trying to avoid an outbreak here. Health and Student Services representatives have met with PEI’s Chief Health Officer, Dr. Lamont Sweet to discuss appropriate precautionary steps. Measures already implemented include an awareness campaign in the student residences, extra cleaning in key areas, and new hand sanitizing stations at entrances to the Wanda Wyatt Dining Hall.”
