Harvard Faculty Club still closed after norovirus sickens over 300

The Harvard Faculty Club, home of a norovirus outbreak that sickened 308 people in late March and early April, remains closed and no one is sure when it will reopen.

Louise Rice, senior director of public health and school health nursing for the Cambridge Public Health Department, told The Cambridge Chronicle,

"They’ve done a very thorough cleaning at this point and they have done retraining of their staff.” Rice also said the city’s Inspectional Services Department recently toured the facility and gave the club a passing grade.
