Norovirus is popping up in parts of Northeast Wisconsin. Door County Public Health Manager Susan Powers says there have not been any confirmed cases of the Norovirus in Door County. Powers has been made aware of people having similar symptoms to the virus especially in elderly living facilities. The Norovirus acts like a "stomach bug" causing diarrhea and vomiting. Powers says the Norovirus pops up the most around now in the winter and into the spring. The worst of the virus lasts 24-48 hours.
Powers added there is a specific test you have to run for the Norovirus and not all medical professionals test for it. You can protect yourself by washing your hands properly with soap and water and by preparing your food safely.
