Winter Vomiting Bug Advice

Norovirus NHS Lothian

Health Scotland has published seasonal guidance, advice and resources to minimise the spread of Norovirus (‘winter vomiting bug’). There is a leaflet available to download from our website and more advice on the Health Scotland website.

The main message to get away is that students who have been off school must wait at least 48 hours after the last time they are sick or have diahorrea, not the first time they are ill.

Please see the infographics below for more information about preventing norovirus and what to do if you catch it.
