“Flu has sent more than three times the number of people to the hospital in Colorado than usual – – The good news? There have been fewer norovirus outbreaks than normal”

Members of our family who spent time in Colorado for Christmas this year have experienced symptoms consistent with the norovirus.  Here is an excerpt from this article about that disease in Colorado as of December 20:

The norovirus — a 24-hour gastrointestinal illness that leads to vomiting and diarrhea — has a shorter season, typically spanning November and December. So far, there have only been 25 reported outbreaks when normally there are anywhere between 30 and 100, said Nicole Comstock, a communicable disease epidemiologist with the state.

“I’ve heard a lot of anecdotal reports like, ‘It seems like a bad year,’ ” she said. “But our outbreak data isn’t really reflecting that.”

But Comstock said that could change by the end of the month. The norovirus is incredibly contagious and tends to spread during the winter, when more people are gathered in close quarters indoors.
