Have you been hit by the stomach bug? It's going around Tuscaloosa in a major way. 

I've seen countless friends posting on social media about their gastrointestinal woes, and it seems as if this stomach virus is super contagious.

Nausea, vomiting, and other awful symptoms have appeared in some people in as little as a few hours after contact with sick people. One of my best friends had this virus and took a full three days to feel normal again.

My advice is to wash your hands and carry around a lot of Purell. No one wants to get sick, especially at the beginning of a new school year.
