DHSC warns Norovirus infected to stay at home

Sat, 08 Aug 2015

Don't bring Norovirus into a hospital.

That's the message from the Department of Health and Social Care after a number of cases were identified at Noble's Hospital.

Sufferers of the bug are advised to stay at home, as it's highly infectious - causing diarrhoea and vomiting.

Patients and visitors shouldn't be in close proximity to someone who is already ill, as they're at high risk of contracting it.

Norovirus usually occurs in communities throughout the course of every year.
