Matsumoto University in Nagano announced on Tuesday that twenty students on the baseball team living in a dormitory complained of nausea.  Seven of the students were diagnosed with the Norovirus.  The university pointed to a meal served at the dormitory as the cause.

According to Nagano Prefecture, on the evening of the 15th, thirty-one students ate Saba-no Misoni (a cooked mackerel dish) and Rei Shabu Salad (cold pork salad) for dinner.  Of the thirty-one students that ate the meal, twenty felt sick on the morning of the 16th.  The Norovirus was also found in fecal matter taken from a cook at the dormitory.
