Norovirus (vomiting and diarrhoea bugs)

Noroviruses are a group of viruses that cause stomach or intestinal infection, leading to vomiting and diarrhoea. Norovirus is highly infectious and spreads easily from person to person. Both faeces (poos) and vomit are infectious, and the virus can survive on contaminated surfaces even after cleaning with some disinfectants.

People with norovirus are infectious for at least 3 days after the symptoms stop and on some occasions for up to 2 weeks.

How is it spread?

Norovirus can be spread in many ways:

  • Consuming contaminated food or drinks.
  • Touching contaminated surfaces or objects and then putting your fingers in your mouth.
  • Having direct contact with an infected person (eg, by sharing food or eating from the same plate or cutlery).
  • Through the air (when vomiting sends tiny particles into the air).
