Norovirus in the community
We are currently experiencing suspected cases of norovirus within the community.
The symptoms of norovirus are diarrhoea which may be accompanied by vomiting. In some cases vomiting may be the only symptom. It usually lasts for about 24 – 48 hours, but unfortunately, the affected person can continue to shed the virus for up to 48 hours after the last episode of diarrhoea and/or vomiting.
For this reason we ask that you do not visit the hospital if you have these symptoms, as this can easily spread to other patients and staff.
