Saint Ignatius Prep reopens after norovirus outbreak


School officials and the health department shut the school down last Wednesday after students began reporting symptoms of the stomach flu.

Crews scrubbed down the entire school with bleach during the closure. Health officials say they believe the virus was brought in by a student. Norovirus is highly contagious and can be passed by casual contact.
