Norovirus symptoms: 6 signs you've caught norovirus


You can catch norovirus from close contact with someone with the virus, touching surfaces or objects that have the virus on them and then touching your mouth, and eating food that’s been prepared or handled by someone with norovirus.

When an infected person vomits, the droplets contaminate the surrounding surfaces, so if someone in your house has it, you should use a bleach-based household cleaner or a combination of bleach and hot water to disinfect the area.

Don’t forget to disinfect potentially contaminated household surfaces and commonly used objects such as toilets, taps, telephones, door handles and kitchen surfaces.

You should wash any contaminated clothing or bedding using detergent and at 60°C, and if possible wear disposable gloves to handle contaminated items.
