Yes

Stomach_flu
Currently, Early spring 2012, a form of acute gastroenteritis caused by a virus has been circulating in Western Pennsylvania. The complication lies in dehydration, so work hard to promote good hydration: small frequent sips of fluids such as Pedialyte. You can slowly progress to your regular diet, but avoid sugary drinks such as juice, soda, and sports drinks. Call your doctor if dehydrated.

Dr. Som Kohanzadeh answered:

Is there a stomach virus that causes excessive burping & heartburn?

Yes

Stomach
Most stomach ulcers are associated with a bacteria known as Helicobacter pylori (H. Pylori). And that treating it is the first line of care for most people who are diagnosed with stomach ulcers carrying this bacteria. In fact the diagnosis and treatment has been so effective, in addition to the use of new medications to decrease and block stomach acid that stomach surgery for ulcers is rare now.

Last year I got a bad stomach virus. 8 months on I've been diagnosed with chronic tonsillitis by ENT. Is there a stomach virus that can cause this?

Usually not

Tonsillitis
Most viruses that cause stomach upset are short lived and do not come back, so it is unlikely that the chronic tonsillitis is from that virus. Chronic tonsillitis may be caused by recurring bacterial infections.

Stomach virus

Fever
we need to see what kind of symptoms you are having: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, abdominal-pelvic pain. the durantion of symptoms, look at your medical history, surgeries, medication, your age and do physical exam. Most of the so called "stomach flu" (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea) last 2-4 days (vomiting in the first 12 hours) resolves spontaneously. see doctor if having severe symptoms

is it safe to be around someone with a stomach virus?

Usually yes

Vomiting
If you practice good hygiene (don't share food or drinks, wash hands frequently, etc.) the chances of contagion are low in most cases. If someone is immunocompromised or chronically ill, extra precautions or isolation should be observed. Some viruses which cause vomiting may be spread via the respiratory tract, but that is not as common.

Dr. Jeremy Adler answered:

Everyone around me is sick, stomach virus, flu, and such. How do I avoid this bug?

Wash your hands

Open-uri20130402-11661-1nwwlbl
The viruses that cause stomach bugs are spread by contact and enter the body through your mouth, nose, or eyes. The best thing is to wash your hands well with soap and water. And do not rub your eyes or nose or touch your mouth with unwashed hands. Viruses also can travel in food or drinks. No sharing cups or food. Many viruses are contagious before symptoms, so looking well is no guarantee.
