Norovirus advice

More schools are seeing cases of the highly-infectious winter vomiting virus, according to public health officials.

They say the disease – characterised by vomiting and diarrhoea – was spotted in some schools earlier in the week but has since cropped up elsewhere.

If your child is ill, there’s a plea not to take them to doctor’s surgeries or Noble’s Hospital but to ask advice by telephone.

Director of public health, Dr Parameswaran Kishore, says you should also keep them out of school.
