    While I agree with Misseleer71 in some aspects, I think norovirus is not a part of the scenario described. As another poster mentioned, there are many strains of it, it is highly contagious and anyone who gets through life having never had it should say several extra prayers of gratitude. Most preventive measures don't do much because this virus is extra sneaky about spreading despite good efforts to avoid it. I think I've had it my five times, but I wouldn't expect that makes me immune from getting it again. Nasty little virus!

    We don't have to put up with our state legislators and governor not enforcing laws to remove foreign students in our schools infecting and crippling American children with diseases bringing across the border unrestricted and untested. The US had eradicated hundreds of childhood diseases and now the greed and fraudulent politicians are putting our children at risk with fraudulent and fake data not disclosing that hundreds of thousand of infected illegal aliens are being put in our schools knowing the illegals are infected and diseased.

    Its time the school board and politicians be held accountable and pay up for not enforcing laws to protect our children from children kidnapped and imported from foreign country's without medical examination killing our children by the hundreds.

    We americans don't have to put up with this criminal poisoning of our schools with socialist communists leaders who think they can take advancement or our children's lives and not suffer the consequences, angry and intolerant americans.

    We are not obligated to harbor illegal aliens children in our schools while they loot and pilfer our tax dollars from americans who are paying education taxes.

    They’ve discovered about 25 different strains of Norovirus, and the average person gets it about 5 times in their lifetime....immune for 14 weeks after each infection. And simple detergent-based cleaners don’t work.

    The reality is you don't stop a noravirus. We had it last Thanksgiving, my son the day before Thanksgiving, me on the Friday after Thanksgiving, my wife the Saturday. It was horrible. The best thing is those who are sick are to stay home until your well. I surely hope we don't get it again.
