Sometimes called the “stomach flu,” norovirus is the most common cause of acute viral gastroenteritis around the world, and the most common cause of foodborne illness in the United States. Unlike some other infectious diseases, we can get norovirus time and again, and the average person will experience a norovirus infection five times in their life.
Cold & Flu Season
It is that time of year, when the spread of germs increases during the fall and winter months. Health professionals and public health organizations are encouraging the public to take preventive measures this cold and flu season to help prevent the spread of germs that can make you and your family sick. Everyday hand hygiene, both handwashing and hand sanitizing with an alcohol-based hand sanitizer, is the single most important way to reduce the spread of germs that can cause infection.
