Norovirus is the leading cause of vomiting and diarrheal illness in the United States. It also is the most common cause of illness and outbreaks from contaminated food in the United States. You can get it from an infected person, contaminated food or water, or by touching contaminated surfaces. Norovirus is a highly contagious virus, and anyone can get infected with norovirus and get sick. The virus causes your stomach or intestines or both to get inflamed. This leads you to have stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea and to throw up. These symptoms can be serious for some people, especially young children and older adults.
