The University of Wisconsin is now dealing with its own gastrointestinal illness outbreak, with 60 students in one large dorm confirmed sick and at least 70 more suspected ill in two Greek organizations, the Delta Gamma sorority and the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. By the end of last week, the incidents of sickness had already begun subsiding, and dorms and off-campus housing had undergone several rounds of cleaning and sanitation, the Badger Herald reports.

Health officials suspect the norovirus is the cause of the outbreak, but they have not yet officially confirmed its source.
