CDC Features Norovirus Prevention

December 3, 2012

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) discusses the prevention of the spread of norovirus in its CDC Features webpage.

The article discusses:

  • Who can get norovirus
  • Symptoms
  • How the virus is spread
  • The lack of vaccine or treatment
  • Proper hand hygiene to stop the spread of norovirus
  • Kitchen precautions for food preparation
  • Cleaning and disinfecting contaminated surfaces
  • Laundry practices for contaminated linens

Norovirus causes about 20 million gastroenteritis cases each year in the United States. There’s no vaccine to prevent infection and no drug to treat it. Wash your hands often and follow simple tips to stay healthy.
