(( It wasn't the severity of the illness that startled health and school officials, it was the speed with which it infected about 120 people. The Norwalk-like virus first showed up in one student on the first of April, and then this week a flood of students and faculty members sought medical assistance, usually just receiving fluids. Health officials say the symptoms varied greatly, but the worst cases experienced vomiting, stomach cramps and diarrhea.

People who have been infected can remain contagious for as many as three days after their symptoms disappear. The virus can be transmitted by direct contact with sick people, by air, or by food.
