Preventing Norovirus Infection
Washing your hands with soap and water is the most important way to avoid acquiring this type of infection. A link to the CDC website's Norovirus prevention information is listed below.
Students who develop nausea, vomiting and/or diarrhea should follow standard self-care guidelines:
- Do not put anything in your stomach for 2 hours after vomiting. Then start drinking clear liquids such as ginger ale or a sports drink.
- If you are feeling lightheaded, have a high fever, see blood in the vomit or diarrhea, have abdominal pain or are still having symptoms after 48 hours, call UHS at 585-275-2662. This number is answered at all times; a physician is on call when the office is not open.
