Norovirus

Norovirus: Prevent transmission by practising good hygiene techniques


Norovirus is transmitted directly from person to person and indirectly via contaminated water and food or by touching contaminated surfaces or objects. This means where possible appropriate infection control measures should be observed and standard precautions should be applied consistently in all work practices at all times. These include basic hand hygiene and a strict workplace hygiene regime.

What is Norovirus?

Norovirus, sometimes known as the winter vomiting bug, is the most common stomach bug in the UK. There are at least 25 different Norovirus strains known to affect humans. Each year, it's estimated that between 600,000 and one million people in the UK catch Norovirus.
 
What are the symptoms of Norovirus?

The first sign of Norovirus is usually suddenly feeling sick followed by
forceful vomiting and watery diarrhoea.
 
Some people may also have: a raised temperature (over 38°C/100.4°F),
headaches, painful stomach cramps and or aching limbs.
 
Apart from the risk of dehydration, Norovirus isn't usually dangerous and there are no long-lasting effects from having the illness. The period from infection to when symptoms start to show (the incubation period) usually lasts between 12 and 48 hours. You may be infectious to other people during this time.
 
How is Norovirus spread?

Norovirus is easily spread. If an infected person doesn't wash their hands before handling food, they can pass the virus on to others. It can also be caught by touching contaminated surfaces or objects.
 
Who's at risk from Norovirus?

The virus is highly contagious and can affect people of all ages. Norovirus infection can be contracted more than once because the body is not able to maintain immunity once you have had it.
 
What are the treatments for Norovirus?

There's no specific cure for Norovirus, the infection has to run its course. It's usually mild and shouldn't last more than a couple of days. You should avoid direct contact with other people and preparing food for others for at least 48 hours after symptoms have gone. You may still be contagious even though you no longer have symptoms.
