Please don’t take norovirus into hospitals or care homes
19 Dec 2014
If you have norovirus - also known as the winter vomiting bug - please don't visit relatives in hospital or care homes if you’ve been sick or had diarrhoea in the last 48 hours. The bug spreads easily and can make patients very poorly.
