The Arizona Cardinals have been forced to move their training camp from Flagstaff, AZ because of a virus outbreak on the campus of Northern Arizona University. Players are scheduled to come into training camp on July 31st and workouts are set to begin on August 1st, but at this point the team says that they have not decided where to relocate. Team officials have stated that they hope to have a new location for camp by August 2nd.

Over the past week or so, more than one hundred individuals have contracted the highly contagious norovirus while attending camps at the university's campus. Norovirus is an illness that causes flu-like symptoms but is not life threatening. It can be contracted through poor hand-washing. Officials say that the virus was most likely passed among the campers through physical contact.

The Arizona Cardinals have been holding training camp at the University since they moved the team for St. Louis in 1988. It is located 7,200 feet above sea level and has picturesque scenery. One potential substitute for the Flagstaff location is Prescott, AZ. The Cardinals worked out in Prescott for a week last year and are scheduled to practice there from August 24th to August 26th.
