How do I know if someone has it
The main symptoms include diarrhoea, vomiting nausea, abdominal pain and fever
Period the child should be kept away from nursery
48 hours from last episode of diarrhoea or vomiting, however, so as to minimise the further spread of infection at nursery and the overall amount of time children spend away, we may decide to exclude children, if more cases are diagnosed. The manager on duty will make this decision.
