Although reported cases dipped over the Christmas break, further cases are expected in the next few weeks, especially as work places and schools get back after the Christmas break.
The NHS website states that the bug is highly contagious, and causes vomiting and diarrhoea. As there is no specific cure, you have to let it run its course, but it should not last more than a couple of days.
If you get norovirus, make sure you drink plenty of fluids to avoid dehydration and practise good hygiene to help prevent it from spreading. It is important to maintain good hand hygiene to help prevent it spreading and stay away from hospitals, schools and care homes.
