So today I went to a clinic to get antibiotics for a sinus infection, and while I was waiting to be called back, a father and his child were standing to my left, at the check-in desk, probably about 8 feet from me, and then I heard I splattering noise coming from their direction, so I looked over, and the child had vomited on his shoes. Immediately (within 3 seconds), I exhaled, covered my nose and mouth with my hands, ran past them, and out the door to my car. I didn't smell anything and I didn't conciously inhale after I saw it. I've gone home, taken a scalding shower, changed clothes, and bleached everything I had with me, and now I'm just waiting, paranoid, until the average incubation period for Norovirus (12-72 hours) is done so I can either face my worst fear or thank God that I didn't come down with anything. Anyone who is knowledgeable about this virus or other gastrointestinal viruses, please try to tell me how likely it is for me to get sick. Be blunt, I want to be prepared.
