Viral recurrence: A variety of viruses can cause GI (stomach) illness, so while you may have better immunity against the virus that made you sick over the summer, it doesn't make you immune to all such viruses. Following safe food practices, washing hands, and keeping distance from those who appear sick will help, but it is not possible to protect 100% against such illnesses.
