PLAINWELL, MI (WHTC) - Allegan County Health Department officials have confirmed that an illness outbreak that compelled Plainwell High School to cancel classes nine days ago was norovirus. More than 150 of the school’s 800 students came down with symptoms from the highly contagious disease, and the building was thoroughly cleaned. Inspectors believe the virus was in the school before the senior prom was held the Rose Street Market two weeks ago; that Kalamazoo establishment was also scrubbed down as a precaution.
