News & Notes: No new cases of gastroenteritis reported

No new cases of gastroenteritis on campus have been reported since Thursday, University Spokesperson Martin Mbugua said Monday.

On Thursday, nine students reported to University Health Services with symptoms of gastroenteritis.

Keith Levine, a local health inspector, said on Thursday that foodborne illness impacted five individuals on Thursday. The source was considered to be Ivy Club, and Levine was summoned to the club to inspect and start an investigation into the outbreak.

The Daily Princetonian was able to independently verify that at least five Ivy members had been afflicted with symptoms of gastroenteritis.

Outbreaks of gastroenteritis affected the University in early 2012 and early 2013. In both cases, the outbreaks affected hundreds of students.
