Viral mixing pot in the EAST

So this may not be on any news wire, and it's still being disavowed by some, but my dorm EAST house is currently in the throes of a stomach virus epidemic! We have at least 6 confirmed cases of vomiting and diarrhea, beginning somewhere within the last 48 hours. My thoughts were about Norwalk virus, especially since the bug seems to be spreading so fast. Fears are growing in light of the fact that two of the victims were only guests and may have brought the virus back to Suites. Any other potential things to add to the differential, guys? Astrovirus? Reovirus? You future EIS officers are all welcome to help me with the investigation!
