Tests confirm norovirus at Bridport school

Posted: Updated:

Vermont health officials say tests confirm norovirus is what made dozens of people sick at Bridport Central School.

Wednesday, three-quarters of students stayed home sick with a stomach bug. By the end of the day, officials decided to close the school for the rest of the week.

The Vt. Health Department suspected a highly contagious norovirus was to blame. Test results back Friday confirm that.

Health officials say most people recover from the illness in 24 to 60 hours. It's unclear whether the school will reopen Monday.
