Teton County Public Health Department says this season’s Influenza activity remains low at this time, but is expected to increase in the coming weeks.  Teton County Health Officer Jim Little is reminding residents to be vigilant in stopping the spread of illness. Recently, there have been norovirus-like symptoms showing up in the community. Norovirus causes “stomach flu” with symptoms of nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramping. Noroviruses are very contagious and can spread easily. Little says if you work in food-handling, healthcare, or child care, you should not attend work while you are ill with norovirus-like symptoms and you should not return to work until 72 hours after your symptoms cease.  Little says measures to lessen your chances of becoming infected with either norovirus or influenza include washing your hands frequently, covering your cough and routinely cleaning common surfaces.
