Norovirus is a very contagious virus that can infect anyone. You can get it from an infected person, contaminated food or

water, or by touching contaminated surfaces. The virus causes your stomach or intestines or both to get inflamed. This

leads you to have stomach pain, nausea, and diarrhea and to throw up. The Noro Virus is  sometimes called the stomach

FLU, although this virus is NOT the influenza virus.
