Sports centre cancels classes amid norovirus worry

A sports centre on the same complex as two schools with suspected norovirus has become the latest to close its doors.

Ashmoor Sports Centre has cancelled its clubs in an attempt to halt the spread of the illness.

Community Sports Manager Tom posted on the club's Facebook page that Gymnastics, Trampolining and the climbing clubs had all been stopped, as well as the evening's spinning class.

The Astro turf pitch is not being treated as an area for concern due to the outside temperatures.


Second Devon school closes after suspected norovirus outbreak

A second school has announced it is to shut after a suspected norovirus outbreak.

The Atrium Studio - which is adjacent to Devon Community College which has also closed its doors - says it will not open until Monday March 13.

Both schools announced on the same day they were to close after staff and pupils came down with the vomiting bug.

The schools share a playground and outside area - which could be how the highly contagious bug was transmitted between the sites.
