People struck down by a stomach bug sweeping the UK have been urged not to go back to work.
Doctors are telling people not to go into hospitals, work or anywhere in public if they have the virus as it will cause it to spread further into those public places.
Doctors estimate that more than 100,000 people a week are catching the norovirus, which causes diarrhoea and vomiting.
My advice is to stay at home for 48 hours and rest.
Stay at home, so it will not spread and no one else can catch the bug. Everybody knows the saying ‘coughs and sneezes, spread diseases’.
Several children at Orchard have had it, so we have been told to wash our hands thoroughly before we eat and after we go to the toilet.
