UPDATE: CalArts to reopen on Wednesday

California Institute of the Arts officials are reopening the institute Wednesday morning following four days of scrubbing and sanitizing in a bid to rid the campus of a bug that sickened at least 16 people.

In an online announcement posted on the school’s website late Tuesday afternoon, school officials said: “After an unexpected pause in classes and on-campus business, CalArts Administration is pleased to announce that the Institute reopens tomorrow Wednesday at 6 a.m. with classes, rehearsals and extra-curricular activities resuming their normal schedules."

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health has now confirmed that last week’s gastroenteritis outbreak was caused by the norovirus, according to the posting.

The Custodial staff and Facilities team have been extremely thorough with their cleaning efforts in the Main Building and outlying buildings and areas. The disinfecting process was to have been completed by Tuesday, according to the online notice.

The campus was closed at the end of day Friday after the illness erupted Wednesday, affecting at least 16 students with violent reactions.
