In brief: 3-7 days.
Symptoms vary from day to day and from person to person.
Illness usually begins 12 hours to 4 days after exposure & generally lasts for 3 - 7 days. Children may have only diarrhea or vomiting at first, but with progression become sufficiently ill to require hospitalization. Other symptoms may develop as the disease evolves; about 10% of children have only fever and vomiting upon admission.
