NY1 reports that Upper East Side private school Ramaz was shut down yesterday when many students and some faculty came down with a mystery illness." The school characterized it as "a highly contagious but not dangerous virus spread through contact from hand-to-surface and person-to-person" (nearly 60 people have had "symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea and low grade fever")—probably a form of viral gastroenteritis—but is still awaiting results from testing. In the mean time, the school, which is being cleaned, says, "The New York City Department Department of Health, Division of Environmental Investigations, indicated that there were no toxins in the food served in the Lower School and they are now checking to determine if there was transmission of a virus from any of the food workers."
