Foodborne illnesses caused by Noroviruses result in gastrointestinal disturbances often accompanied by symptoms of acute gastroenteritis (sudden onset of vomiting, nausea and / or diarrhea sometimes associated with abdominal cramps, moderate fever, chills, muscle stiffness and headaches).

These symptoms appear 10 to 50 hours after consumption.

Pregnant women should pay special attention to these symptoms, as well as immunocompromised people, young children and the elderly.

USA – Rare Norovirus GIV Foodborne Outbreak, Wisconsin, USA

CDC

Food Borne Illness - Norovirus -CDC Photo

We report a norovirus GIV outbreak in the United States, 15 years after the last reported outbreak. During May 2016 in Wisconsin, 53 persons, including 4 food handlers, reported being ill. The outbreak was linked to individually prepared fruit consumed as a fruit salad. The virus was phylogenetically classified as a novel GIV genotype.

Norovirus is the leading cause of epidemic and endemic acute gastroenteritis globally. The virus can be transmitted through person-to-person contact, consumption of fecally contaminated food or water, or self-contamination after touching contaminated environmental surfaces (1,2). Noroviruses are divided into at least 10 genogroups (G), and viruses in GI, GII, GIV, GVIII, and GIX cause illness in humans (3). More than 99% of all norovirus outbreaks are caused by GI and GII viruses in the United States (4). GVIII includes 2 strains that have been detected in Japan during 2004 and 2011 (3), and GIX has caused 11 reported outbreaks in the United States since 2013 (https://www.cdc.gov/norovirus/reporting/calicinet/data.html).

GIV is divided into 2 recognized genotypes: GIV.1, which infects humans (5), and GIV.2, which infects canines and felines (6). GIV viruses were reported in humans in the Netherlands during 1998 and the United States during 1999 (7,8) and have since been sporadically reported in clinical and environmental samples (5,911). An outbreak linked to a GIV norovirus in the United States has not been reported since 2001 (4,8). In this article, we describe a 2016 foodborne norovirus outbreak associated with a novel GIV strain (tentatively GIV.NA).

USA – Colorado: Suspected norovirus increases reported in Mesa County child care centers

Outbreak News Today

Food Borne Illness - Norovirus -CDC Photo

The Mesa County Public Health (MCPH) reports seeing an increase in gastrointestinal (GI) illness, suspected norovirus, in child care centers in the county.

Health officials say the reported symptoms are very similar to norovirus, a very common and highly contagious GI illness that lasts anywhere between 24 and 72 hours.

Community members who are not feeling well, and who have been sick with vomiting or diarrhea episodes, should not go to work or school until at least 24 hours since the last episode, 48 hours is preferred if possible.

It’s also very important that children who are being kept out of school due to illness do not attend child care while they are ill.

Norovirus is a common cause of gastrointestinal illness. Symptoms often include diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach cramps. People who are ill from a norovirus may also experience headaches, body aches and fever.
