Norovirus

Incubation Period for Norovirus

When a person becomes infected with a norovirus, the virus begins to multiply within the small intestine. After approximately one to two days, symptoms can appear. This period between transmission and the start of symptoms is the "norovirus incubation period." In some cases, the incubation period can be as short as 12 hours after exposure.
