Infectious diseases

Norovirus or ‘winter vomiting' is the most common cause of gastro-enteritis in England and Wales and affects people of all ages.  

It is highly infectious and the common symptoms are:

  • projectile vomiting,
  • diarrhoea,
  • nausea,
  • raised temperature,
  • headaches and aching limbs.  

Prompt action is essential when someone vomits in a public area in order to: 

  • Contain the infection and reduce the number of people affected
  • Prevent an outbreak occurring
  • Reduce disruption to the operation of the business or organisation
  • Minimise sick leave
  • Prevent bad publicity 

Watch the video for guidance on preventing the spread of this infection.
