      West Warwick students fall ill after dance

      State health officials are interviewing everyone who attended a father-daughter dance at the Radisson Hotel in Warwick after at least 25 girls at the Greenbush Elementary School have come down with norovirus-like symptoms.

      The elementary school is located in West Warwick.

      The health department is advising school officials about decontaminating the school building.

      One parent told NBC 10 on Monday that their child was the 32nd youth to come down with the illness.

      NBC 10 has not been able to confirm with the health department the exact number of students who were infected.

      The Associated Press contributed to this report.
