Dr Cowling, said: "We realise that people will want to visit friends and relatives whether at home or in hospitals, care or nursing homes over winter.
"If you are visiting people who are particularly vulnerable to infection and you have symptoms of sickness and/or diarrhoea, the best thing you can do to protect your loved ones is to delay any visits until you are fully recovered and have been symptom free for two days."
If symptoms worsen or persist for more than 48 hours, contact your family doctor to take advice from NHS Direct.
