The Monroe County Department of Public Health has determined norovirus  is likely responsible for recent illnesses on Rochester Institute of Technology’s (RIT) Henrietta campus.

The vast majority of cases were resolved within 24-36 hours without medical treatment. However, some RIT students did need care in the Student Health Center, and a few received care in a local emergency department.

In response, the school has increased deep cleaning and sanitization efforts on high-touch surfaces in residence halls, dining areas, restrooms, and other spaces across campus.
