It's that time of year to be thinking about Norovirus. Norovirus is a highly contagious virus, and it can be spread through eating food or drinking liquids that are contaminated with norovirus, touching surfaces or objects contaminated with norovirus then putting your fingers in your mouth, or having contact with someone who is infected with norovirus. Handwashing is the single-most important strategy against the spread of norovirus.
