Health experts battle to keep a winter vomiting bug out of Cornwall's hospitals.

Norovirus has already taken grip in some offices and schools in the Duchy.

Now Louise Dickinson from Treliske is worried it could disrupt operations and wants anybody with it to stay clear for 48 hours:

“It can result in ward closures which obviously we don’t want to happen but that’s one of the best ways of containing the illness and the spread throughout the hospital but obviously that then has an effect on elective activity as well and we really don’t want that to happen.

“If they have symptoms of the diarrhoea and vomiting they really are best to stay at home not to socialise with others, don’t go to work and obviously at home make sure they are washing their hands properly and not preparing food for anyone else”
