Salmonella is an infection that is commonly caused by contaminated food or water.

Often, salmonella leads to food poisoning of some sort, which includes symptoms like stomach cramps,vomiting, and diarrhea.

Norovirus

More commonly known as the stomach flu, Norovirus is a rapidly spreading virus that can spread through contact with those who are already ill with the virus, or from touching a contaminated surface and then touching your mouth or face. It’s not uncommon for outbreaks of this illness to occur from November to April. The symptoms of norovirus include nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting.

Influenza

However, the workplace is one of the most common places to catch this illness because of the close proximity to others and the many opportunities to spread the germs and bacteria that cause it. Influenza is a respiratory virus that attacks the nose, throat, and lungs. You might experience symptoms like coughing, a runny or clogged nose, a sore throat, a sense of lethargy, fever or cold sweats, and aches and pains. The flu is easily spread through physical contact with those who already have the flu, or by being near someone who is coughing and sneezing.
