In brief: Transmission

Viral gastroenteritis is transmitted person to person.

An infected person may contaminate drinks, food, various surfaces and objects with germs. This is particularly a concern if hands are not properly washed. I would be concerned about transmission with various types of physical intimacy (although it is not a sexually transmitted disease).
