Viral Gastroenteritis/Norovirus is on the increase
If you have symptoms:
- Wash hands with liquid soap and warm running water:
- Following an episode of diarrhoea or vomiting
- After using the toilet
- Before handling and eating food
Following an episode of diarrhoea or vomiting, clean and disinfect the affected area with a chlorine-based disinfectant product, e.g. household bleach, Milton.
Not use alcohol handrub as it is not effective at killing the virus.
Stay at home and do not visit hospitals (unless an emergency) or care homes until symptom free for 48 hours.
