    The article doesn’t say which schools!

      WHICH SCHOOLS? I agree. I don’t know why they couldn’t provide that helpful information. There are a lot of schools in AC.

      Reed is one of the schools as my youngest goes there and they have sent us parents A LOT of communication about the situation. My son was vomiting over the weekend. His ills lasted less than 30 hours and he sprung back nicely.
      My oldest goes to Taylor and had his turn with the bucket last night.

      So it’s going around. All around.

    I take it this is about the outbreak that occurred 3 weeks ago. I received an APS email from Harmon on January 19th saying there were three cases total found in two schools. It didn’t say which schools.

    Oh, it’s not over. As near as I can tell Wave 2 started this week.

  • Arly

    Going around daycares too.

  • Tabs

    Wash your hands, people!

    I was curious about the concrete slab. It kind of lines up as a sightline for taking a picture of the mall but it didn’t make sense to pave over part of a park for a photo op.

    It definitely hit Nottingham. Nine kids were out in my son’s class, and everyone in my family got it.

    • Ralph

      +3 on Nottingham. ughhhhh

  • Louise

    Nice job Wakefield!

  • Diane

    Wash your hands and turn off the faucet with a paper towel. Hand sanitizers are not effective against norovirus! Diane, RN
