Norovirus

Noroviruses are a group of related viruses.  Infection with these viruses affects the stomach and intestines and causes an illness called gastroenteritis (inflammation of the stomach and intestines). Noroviruses are the most common cause of gastroenteritis in the United States. Anyone can get norovirus and they can be infected with the virus many times over a lifetime. Common symptoms include diarrhea, vomiting and stomach pain. Noroviruses are highly contagious and outbreaks are common due to the ease of transmission. Outbreaks may occur in places where people consume water and/or food prepared or handled by others, such as nursing homes, hospitals, restaurants, cruise ships, banquet halls, summer camps and family dinners.

In New Jersey, norovirus is not reportable, however outbreaks associated with the virus are reportable.
