ARLINGTON, Va. -

Students at two Arlington schools have come down with Norovirus.

Parents were told Wednesday that the outbreaks have been tracked to Patrick Henry and Randolph Elementary schools.

A similar outbreak happened in February.

Norovirus is highly contagious, but patients usually get better after a few days.

Parents are asked to keep their children home if they have any stomach or digestive bug symptoms.

Both schools remain open.
