Niro Virus Information

Norovirus is a very contagious virus. You can get norovirus from an infected person, contaminated food or water, or by touching contaminated surfaces. The virus causes your stomach or intestines or both to get inflamed (acute gastroenteritis). This leads you to have stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and to vomit. Norovirus is the most common cause of acute gastroenteritis in the United States and is also the most common cause of foodborne-disease outbreaks in the United States.
The best way to help prevent norovirus is to follow these guidelines:

  • Practice proper hand-washing with soap and water and wash for at least 20 seconds after using the restroom or changing diapers and always before preparing food or eating. Only use hand sanitizer when hand-washing is not available. Continue to wash your hands often for up to two weeks after being ill because the illness can stay in stool for that timeframe.
  • Clean and disinfect common surfaces (light switches, door handles, bathroom fixtures, etc.) with a bleach-based household cleaner or other EPA-approved disinfectant effective against norovirus as directed on the product label. You can prepare your own bleach-water solution by mixing five tablespoons to one cup of household bleach into one gallon of water.
  • Protect your clothing and use gloves when caring for infected persons.  Immediately remove any clothing or bedding soiled with stool or vomit and wash and machine dry completely.
  • If you become sick, stay home from school, childcare, or work, and do not prepare food or care for other persons until your symptoms stop for at least 1-2 days.
