Symptoms that commonly occur are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps and can last from 12 to 60 hours.

It is recommended that people who are infected drink small amounts of liquids for rehydration, stick to a normal diet and remain home for two days after the symptoms have stopped.

The virus often spreads when a person comes in contact with countertops and surfaces that have not been properly cleaned.

The virus can also spread by inhaling air particles when in close proximity to someone who vomits.
