Norovirus is a virus that causes the “stomach flu,” or vomiting and diarrhea, in people. Outbreaks occur as the virus is spread very easily from person to person. The illness is usually not very serious, but older people, children, or those with other medical issues may have serious complications that can result in hospitalization.
