The city of Taylor had the air and water tested and both came back clean.

This past weekend, about 80 people, including many youth hockey players, became ill at the Taylor Sportplex during an amateur hockey tournament.

Right now, all indications are that the culprit was norovirus. The victims were suffering symptoms of norovirus, but the city wanted to make sure poor air and water conditions weren't to blame.

Crews continue to sanitize the entire building.

They hope to have the Sportsplex open to the public by Wednesday afternoon.
