Norovirus and Working with Food

Norovirus is a highly contagious virus that can make you very sick with diarrhea, throwing up, and stomach pain. Anyone who works with food should know about this virus. Foods contaminated with Norovirus can make people sick! Norovirus is the leading cause of illness and outbreaks from contaminated food in the United States. The virus can easily contaminate food because it is very tiny and infective. It only takes a very small amount of virus particles (as few as 18) to make someone sick.

Noroviruses are a group of related viruses that can cause gastroenteritis (GAS-tro-en-ter-I-tis), which is inflammation of the stomach and intestines. This leads to cramping, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. People with norovirus illness are contagious from the moment they begin feeling sick and for the first few days after they recover. Some people may be contagious for even longer. There is no vaccine to prevent norovirus infection or drug to treat sick people. Learn how to protect yourself and others by following a few simple steps.
