Norovirus is an extremely contagious virus that is passed through contaminated food and drink, via person-to-person contact, and through contact with contaminated objects (fomites). Most people who contract norovirus experience vomiting, nausea, and diarrhea. Symptoms usually begin quickly, and end without medical intervention within a day or two, although some people do become sick enough, usually with dehydration, to require hospitalization.
