Norovirus spreading in NB

Norovirus is spreading in the province and the government has issued a warning for residents to take precautions to prevent its spread, including washing your hands frequently.

Acting chief medical officer of health, Dr. Jennifer Russell, says norovirus can be very unpleasant for a healthy person…but for those with weakened immune systems, it can cause serious illness.

The virus is easily spread so those with symptoms of nausea, vomiting and diarhea should stay home.
