Maricopa County, AZ, Department of Public Health officials have reported a norovirus outbreak at Kyrene de la Colina Elementary School.
More than 125 students have been stricken with a gastrointestinal illness in the past week.
Long-term care facilities function as both a healthcare facility and a home for their residents, meaning that the environment needs to be clean as well as disinfected.
Cleaning professionals need to take precautions to help control the spread of the influenza virus, norovirus and other pathogens in their facilities.
Although the symptoms of norovirus often mimic those of a cold or the flu, the potential hazards of the bug should not be taken lightly.
