If you have had a week’s worth of vomiting/nausea/diarrhea – chances are good you have the norovirus. It’s nasty and it’s in the DC metro area.
First – STAY HOME
Put yourself on the BRAT diet Bananas, Rice, Applesauce, Toast. Drink only FLAT gingerale or gaterade or ginger tea. NO water as it will increase the stomach acid and make the symptons worse. Stay on the BRAT diet until you are symptom free for 2 days.
