Can you catch the norovirus before the infected person becomes sick?

Posted , 5 users are following.

I had a guy in my house installing flooring the past two days. Today he cancelled on me saying he has the stomach virus. I have bad health anxiety and scared I will become sick. He was not sick while at my house. He felt pretty healthy during the job. I have cleaned everything just in case. Obviously we didn’t share anything. A family member seems to think I will be okay because at the time he was not physically sick to spread the virus. Is it possible to get sick from someone before they become sick?
