Stomach virus, vomiting, dark watery diarrhea, light clay coloured stools. Treatment options?

I have had a stomach virus for the past couple of days along with vomiting and very watery dark diarrhea . My sister-in-law got it on the same day and then my husband a couple of days later. (This is how I ruled out food poisoning .) I am concerned,however, because when my stools turned more solid, they were a light clay color, and have been for two days. Can a virus cause my stools to turn this color?
