Laying in the sun to kill Norovirus? The Googles they do nothing?

I've got a lot of mixed information Googling about norovirus while working from home and entertaining a few previously ill but recovering and grumpy kids.

Sure I can go buy a bottle of bleach, but do I have to? Can I set ALL THE PILLOWS out on the driveway (clean sheet) for an hour on each side in the sun? Florida, driveway is east/west - plenty of sun exposure).
Alternatives to sunning ALL THE PILLOWS are washing in my front loader on sterilize cycle; I guess 'ruining' the color on a couple of inexpensive pillows is nothing compared to losing more work/school days to this blasted illness.
Notes: The pillows were not vomited upon (though a couple near so I am washing those). The other linens and beds (yay for mattress covers) have been scrubbed with bleachy wipe things that I keep around for hurricanes/severe stomach bug outbreaks.
