Is Northfield having a norovirus outbreak?

    It’s out there. The Enders family had a nasty bout of Norwalk-type illness over Thanksgiving, and I’ve seen/heard about plenty of it around Lakeville a month or two back.

    It’s not at all pleasant. On the bright side, it usually doesn’t last very long, and (as a plus for parents and pediatricians) it is usually (not always) milder in young kids than it is in adults.

    Thanks for the warning. This is not related to the H1N1? I’ve had several bouts of respiratory and stomach flu over the last several months, but no vomiting.

    I do wish parents would tell their children not to run down the aisles in the grocery store, patting all the fruits and vegetables and meat packages, in particular. Seems there is at least one child doing this at any given time.\

    How long do germs live on these surfaces?
