Health officials at UNC-Chapel Hill are reporting an apparent outbreak of norovirus throughout the Greek community, leading the Panhellenic Council to postpone sorority recruitment.Local news outlets report the council took the recommendation of campus health and the Orange County Health Department to cancel events scheduled for Thursday and Friday.

UNC Campus Health says it has treated a "number of students for gastro-related symptoms that resemble the norovirus."

The clinic has collected lab samples and is awaiting results, which could take up to 24 hours. No cases have been confirmed so far.
