HEALTH officials have produced an online advice film in a bid to prevent an outbreak of the norovirus vomiting bug in the area.
The two-and-a-half minute video features Dr Sheila Newport, chairman of NHS Southern Derbyshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
In the film, Dr Newport warns that the bug is extremely contagious and that people who have caught it should stay at home for at least 72 hours after their symptoms have cleared.
Their advice is that people with symptoms should call their GP or the non-emergency NHS number, 111.
The video also calls on sufferers to help stop winter vomiting in its tracks by washing their hands thoroughly and disinfecting all surfaces.
The film is available to view online at www.youtube.com/watch?v=HApTa1IO-gM
