Analysis of paired sera from 48 wastewater workers and controls who reported gastrointestinal illness did not reveal any excess of seroconversions to Norwalk agent or to rotavirus. Inexperienced wastewater-exposed workers had higher levels of antibody in Norwalk agent than did experienced and control workers and those with high and medium aerosol exposure had higher titres than those in the low aerosol category. Analysis for Prototheca antibody titres was essentially negative.
