Fighting Norovirus- Hydrobiotic Recovery Formula

fight_back_2.0_with watermark

Travel season, cruise excursions, or even large conference type settings like we have recently heard about in the news, are all the perfect breeding grounds for the dreaded norovirus. Although cruises and resort destinations have become infamous for their reputation of remaining plagued by the norovirus, they aren’t the only place this nasty bug likes to lurk. Norovirus is easily spread where there are a large amount of people in one place for any extended amount of time. For example, it is common to hear of outbreaks in schools, healthcare facilities, military camps, and prisons. Not only is norovirus spread from person to person, but it is also often spread through contaminated food in restaurants and catered event type settings.

Over the last few years, we’ve heard stories in the media about an influx of norovirus on cruise vacations and resort destinations - mostly due to large numbers of people residing in close proximity, traveling to foreign waters, eating and drinking new foods, and exposing themselves to unfamiliar bacteria. Although norovirus isn’t exclusive to cruise ships and vacation destinations, it is a concern to keep in mind when you’re preparing for your next trip or convention. Norovirus is an infection that induces a sudden onset of vomiting and diarrhea and is highly contagious, as it spreads rapidly through close contact with an infected person.  

Here are some helpful tips to prevent catching norovirus, according to the CDC:

-Wash Fruits and Vegetables Thoroughly and Cook Seafood Thoroughly- it’s important to be aware that noroviruses are very resilient, they can survive temperatures as high as 140F

-When You are Sick DO NOT Prepare Food for Others, or Care For Others Who Are also Sick-even if you are feeling better, the truth is that you can still spread norovirus for up to two days after your symptoms have faded.

-Clean and Disinfect Contaminated Surfaces- it is suggested that you use a chlorine bleach with a concentration of 1,000 to 5,000 ppm (5-25 Tablespoons of bleach to one gallon of water) when washing contaminated surfaces.

-Wash Laundry Thoroughly- handle soiled items carefully and with rubber gloves, you should wash all soiled laundry at the maximum available cycle length and then machine dry them.
