Ask Karen

Posted: Updated:
Can I get Noro-virus again after being sick with it?

Yes.

We can all get sick again from noro-virus even if we just got over the illness. The Centers for Disease Control says there can be some level of short term immunity.

But Carilion Clinic's Dr. Thomas Kerkering reminds us there are many different kinds of Noro-virus, so if we immediately are exposed to a different form then we likely will get sick.
