Bucks County school closed due to norovirus

    A private, all-girls Catholic high school in suburban Philadelphia is closed Friday because of a high number of students and staff dealing with norovirus.

    The Villa Joseph Marie High School in the Bucks County suburb of Holland says it plans on reopening Monday.

    Noroviruses affect the stomach and intestines and are typically spread through water and fluids. But they can sometimes pass from person to person.
