Norovirus -- aka Norwalk-like viruses or caliciviruses ... Noroviruses are a group of related viruses. Infection with these viruses affects the stomach and intestines and causes an illness called gastroenteritis (GAS-tro-en-ter-I-tis; inflammation of the stomach and intestines).

Norovirus outbreak strikes NBA in 2010 ... Overall, 21 players and three staff from 13 National Basketball Association (NBA) teams in 11 states were affected by a norovirus outbreak from November to December 2010 ...

Impact of new norovirus strain on outbreaks Norovirus caused the majority of acute gastroenteritis outbreaks in the United States from 2007 to 2010. However, a new strain that emerged in 2009 did not lead to more outbreaks.

You may hear norovirus illness called "food poisoning" or "stomach flu." It is true that food poisoning can be caused by noroviruses. But, other germs and chemicals can also cause food poisoning. Norovirus illness is not related to the flu (influenza), which is a respiratory illness caused by influenza virus.

Symptoms of norovirus infection usually include diarrhea, throwing up, nausea, and stomach cramping.

Other, less common symptoms may include low-grade fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, and general sense of fatigue.
