State health officials are warning that it is still prime time for the spread of norovirus.
The highly-contagious bug is a leading cause of what’s commonly called “the stomach flu,” with vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, fever and chills. It is most common from November to April.
The state public health department recommends regular hand-washing and cleaning of frequently-touched surfaces like doorknobs. And if you contract the norovirus, do not engage in any food preparation until you’re well.
