SHARE 59 CONNECT 36 TWEET COMMENTEMAILMORE More than 300 passengers and crew on the Celebrity Summit have been hit with a stomach bug identified as norovirus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The ship is on a two-week Canada/New England sailing, which embarked from Bayonne, N.J., on Sept. 21 and is due to return there on Saturday. In response to the outbreak which the CDC said affected 14.5% of passengers and 1.5% of crew onboard a beefed up cleaning and disinfection plan has been put in place on the ship. The CDC is also working with the cruise line on how to deal with “active cases” and cleansing procedures for when the ship returns to Bayonne. Through its Vessel Sanitation Program, the CDC said it would send an epidemiologist and an environmental health officer to meet the ship and do a health assessment, as well as to monitor sanitation procedures. The predominant symptoms of the gastrointestinal illness are vomiting and diarrhea. “Those affected by the short-lived illness have responded well to over-the-counter medication being administered onboard the ship,” said Celebrity Cruises spokeswoman Cynthia Martinez.
