The mysterious illness plaguing Humber College continues.

Last week, it was reported that several students had fallen ill, and the College was working with Toronto Public Health to find the cause of the problem.

The College issued another statement reporting that approximately 200 cases of this mysterious outbreak is now confirmed at the North Campus.

“The total number of ill students has not appreciably changed from yesterday evening, with approximately 200 reported cases of people experiencing common symptoms of stomach cramping and vomiting,” stated Humber. “According to Toronto Public Health people who have become ill have recovered in one to two days without serious health effects.”

Despite the growing number of the illness, the College remained open on Monday.

Humber also said that they stopped serving, and disposed of, food from last week.

According to the school, Toronto Public Health are currently testing samples and the lab results are pending. There has been no confirmation at this time on the cause of the illness, or what it may be.

The school is encouraging students to wash their hands, and use sanitizers available to them.

Anyone feeling ill is asked to stay home until they are free of symptoms. Humber continues to monitor the situation.
