Norovirus Update, 12 March 2024

Cases of sickness and diarrhoea (norovirus) are rising and impacting local hospitals in Cornwall.

If you or your family have symptoms, please do not visit a healthcare setting. Get better at home with simple self-care.
Stay off school or work until you have not been sick or had diarrhoea for at least 2 days. This is when you are most infectious.

Self-care tips:

  • Stay at home and get plenty of rest
  • Drink lots of fluids
  • Take paracetamol if you’re in discomfort
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often (hand gel is not effective against norovirus)
