Is norovirus contagious?
Yes, norovirus is very contagious. If you get norovirus, you can shed billions of virus particles in your faeces or vomit. It only takes a few viral particles to make others sick. A person with norovirus is most contagious when they have symptoms and for a few days after they have recovered.
