According to Michigan Health Officials there is a norovirus that is spreading through Michigan at the worst time of the year. According to WLNS, there is a report from state health officials that they are warning us about a spread of the norovirus which is easily spreadable. The norovirus can be spread through a few different ways such as; person to person, through food, or on surfaces that aren't clean.

The norovirus isn't fun to have as it causes symptoms kind of like the flu as you will start to feel vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramping. A high temperature may also be a symptom but the stomach symptoms are more associated with norovirus. These symptoms can start anywhere from 12 hours to three days after you have been in contact with it. So if you want to combat this the easiest way is to wash your hands with warm water, and especially wash your hands before eating or touching your eyes or face.

I have already caught something this winter so I'm hoping not catch this. More on it here.
