Can you catch the norovirus twice?
My baby had the norovirus a few weeks ago. Could he catch it again if he comes in contact with it?

Yes you can. but not the same strain immediately. There are unfortunately several strains of norovirus but you would be unlucky to catch it twice. Remember there is another virus that gives kids (usually under 4 years old) the squirts. It is called rotavirus which is also common this time of year and very infectious. Watch out nurseries!!

Yes, there is very little resistance to norovirus which is why it tends to sweep through schools and elderly persons homes with great regularity. People who have the virus should stay away from other people for at least 48 hours after the symptoms have abated as it is very infectious. Hope the baby's okay.

You will not catch the same virus twice but you may still catch another virus with the same symptoms.

I've just asked this question. Answer: http://uk.answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=ArU_jNO6EY4JIImKIRAwXOQgBgx.;_ylv=3?qid=20080104001343AA51dbD

Not sure what that virus is, but being a virus I would say yes, as viruses usually can re-occur as in colds and flu. We never become immune to viruses.
