Norovirus On The Increase In Great Falls

From Kristal Kuhn, Emergency Management Planner:

This information was sent to us by the CCHD (Cascade County Health Dept) so I thought I'd pass along the "good news".

Within the past weeks, we have seen an increase in norovirus activity in Great Falls. It can be very contagious. Symptoms of diarrhea, vomiting, nausea and stomach cramping usually last 1-2 days, however, most people remain contagious up to 3 days after symptoms have ended.

Please review the attached fact sheet. (See below)
