CDC seeing increase of Norovirus cases

Norovirus cases are surging across the country. The CDC says 15% of cases are coming back positive.

Norovirus is a viral infection that causes stomach problems and lasts one to three days. It’s an illness that tends to show up in winter, and there’s an uptick in February.

Doctors say this year cases are slightly higher than normal.

As with RSV and flu, norovirus is spread largely by and among children.

So how do you avoid it? The number one way to prevent transmission of this virus is to practice proper hand hygiene. You should also disinfect surfaces if someone else in your house is sick.
