Norovirus - Wash Your Hands!
Recent outbreaks of norovirus, a common and very contagious gastrointestinal illness, have sickened many people across North Carolina. People can get sick through direct contact with a person who has the virus, by touching contaminated surfaces, or by eating food or drinking liquids that have been contaminated with the virus.
The most important way to prevent the spread of norovirus is thorough hand-washing using soap and water. Hand sanitizers are not effective against norovirus.
