What is Norovirus?
Norovirus is a common illness in a group of viruses that cause gastroenteritis, usually causing vomiting or diarrhea. Additional symptoms may include stomach cramps, nausea, headache and muscle aches, chills and fever. Symptoms typically start within 24 to 48 hours of virus exposure but can start in as little as 12 hours.
The virus is very contagious and easily spread in commercial food businesses, including event centres, restaurants, hotels and takeaway food establishments. It’s also easily spread in close-contact settings such as childcare facilities, hospitals and nursing homes.
Safe food handling practices and proper hygiene are key to reducing the risk of Norovirus and other food-borne illnesses.
