Hand-washing paramount

The study suggested that sick workers are not taking precautions to keep customers from getting ill, including avoiding food preparation and washing their hands more frequently. As simple as it sounds, proper and regular hand-washing can be critical in stopping norovirus outbreaks.

“Every time we see an outbreak, hand-washing had to fail basically,” Smith said. “We as a society don’t wash our hands very well.”

Bogard calls norovirus “a people problem, not really a food problem.”
