Richland County, SC (WLTX) - Health officials say they've been looking into several cases of a stomach illness at Hopkins Middle school.

They tell News19 they suspect the cause is norovirus, which affects the stomach and intestines.

State health officials say while this is sometimes incorrectly referred to as the stomach flu, it is not a version of the flu. Health officials recommend to keep sick children at home for at least 24 hours after they no longer have vomiting or diarrhea.
