Marc asked:

If I have Norovirus how long does my flat remain infectious for?


kitchenRachel -  Well, at least for 48 hours.

Chris -  I don't think hes implying hes going to cook dinner while hes having vomiting.

Rachel - Obviously not.

Chris - How long should people not come around your house for?

Rachel - If you're really good at cleaning, perhaps a week, clean your house a couple of times, your bathroom is the key area, the kitchen, a week.

Chris - So, defer that dinner party for a week Mark and you'll probably be alright.
