    Vt. school closes

    over mass illness

    BRIDPORT The Vermont Health Department is investigating conditions at a school in Bridport after about 80 of the 130 students and staff either called in or went home sick.

    The illnesses were reported Wednesday at the Bridport Central School. The district has called off school for Thursday and Friday as it sanitizes the building.

    The Health Department is testing samples from those who are sick.

    Symptoms included diarrhea and vomiting. Infectious disease epidemiologist Bradley Tompkins said it could be the Norovirus, also known as stomach flu.

    Students in preschool through sixth grade attend the school.
