Over 300 Infected with Norovirus on Celebrity Summit Cruise

Over 300 passengers and crew on the Celebrity Summit cruise ship have contracted a norovirus stomach bug.

The ship embarked on a two-week trip for Canada and New England which left from Bayonne, N.J. on Sept. 21 and returned last Saturday.

Around 311 of the 2,112 passengers and 14 of the 952 crew members reported symptoms of diarrhea and vomiting.

In response to the outbreak, Celebrity Cruises is working with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention on cleaning procedures.

The CDC sent an epidemiologist and an environment officer to meet the ship upon its return to complete a health assessment.
