Urgent advice: Norovirus Cases are increasing in Cornwall

Norovirus update, 11 March 2024

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

  • 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)
