People with norovirus illness usually develop symptoms of gastroenteritis within 24 to 48 hours, but symptoms can start as early as 12 hours after exposure. The main symptoms of norovirus illness are diarrhea, vomiting (children usually experience more vomiting than adults), nausea and stomach cramps.  Other symptoms may include low-grade fever, headache, chills, muscle aches and fatigue (a general sense of tiredness). 

Most people feel better within one or two days, with symptoms resolving on their own, and experience no long-term health effects. In severe cases, patients may need to be hospitalized and given fluids intravenously.
