Outbreak of Norovirus at John Jay Evacuation Center

November 7, 2012

Yesterday when I was voting, a local mom I know told me that there was an outbreak of a Norovirus at the John Jay High School Complex  Hurricane Sandy Evacuation Center and at two other Brooklyn high schools. The building is now quarantined and the schools in that building will not be able to resume until this serious health issue has been resolved.

According to the Daily News, 13 children who were living in the shelter contracted the extremely contagious norovirus, which causes vomiting, diarrhea and gastrointestinal distress.
