We have received a report of food poisoning from the Montreal Food Health Inspection Division in connection with the CS-CAN 2023 Co-Located event in Montreal. Several people have reported becoming ill. Norovirus is suspected but the Health Inspection Division is further investigating. As we are not yet certain of the secondary transmission properties, we recommend everyone practices infection control such as hand-washing, mask wearing and limiting contacts, especially with elderly and at-risk individuals, for a healthy period after illness. We will keep you informed as we receive further information for the Montreal Food Health Inspection Division.
Our sincere apologies if you were affected by this very unfortunate event.
