CUYAHOGA COUNTY, OH (WOIO) - The Cuyahoga County Board of Health has seen an increase in cases of Norovirus and other gastrointestinal illness among county residents. Norovirus can be dangerous due to its ability to cause dehydration, which can lead to further medical problems.

Norovirus, often referred to as “stomach flu,” causes nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps, often at the same time.

It is very contagious and can easily spread from person to person through stool and/or vomit of infected persons. This can occur by direct contact with someone who is ill or through contacting food that is prepared by someone who is ill.

The symptoms usually last one to two days, and most people recover without issue. Health officials recommend you stay home 48-72 hours after your illness stops, because you still may be contagious.

Dehydration can occur as a side effect, due to the continued loss of fluids through vomiting and diarrhea. It is very important to drink plenty of liquids after the symptoms have stopped.

Norovirus can affect anyone and may be especially difficult for infants and children, senior citizens, and people with other medical conditions.

If symptoms do not go away or become more severe, you should get medical help as soon as possible.

To reduce the chances of getting or spreading the illness, practice good personal hygiene, such as frequent hand washing.

If you are sick with Norovirus, do not prepare food, share cups or utensils, or come in close contact with those in your household.

Learn more about the virus from the Centers for Disease Control[42].
