This week Gardner-Webb University and the Cleveland County Health Department joined forces after a number of visiting campers began experiencing symptoms including diarrhea and vomiting. The health department has recommended that this be treated as the norovirus, and as a precaution to avoid the additional spread of the virus, the University chose to close select facilities throughout the weekend, and advised the camp most impacted by the norovirus to leave campus earlier than originally planned to assist in stopping additional spread. The university first became aware of the sickness when two campers arrived at Gardner-Webb on Monday experiencing symptoms.
