Norovirus – Stay at home!

Norovirus box

Due to a number of people arriving at the Urgent Treatment Centres on the Fylde Coast, we are aware of some pockets of norovirus in the area.

We would strongly urge anyone suffering from this condition to remain at home and wait for the symptoms to pass. This is a highly contagious illness for which there is no medical treatment available.

If you or your child is suffering from the bug, drink lots of fluids and take paracetamol to ease any discomfort. Symptoms should pass within two days.

If you are particularly concerned about the symptoms you or your loved one is experiencing, please call 111 for advice.
