Norovirus Hits National Park

January 20, 2020

About 170 people who thought they were starting the new year right by visiting Yosemite National Park in California for some hiking and sightseeing may have been hit by a norovirus outbreak, CNN reports.

Most of the illnesses occurred in the first week of January and involved both visitors and employees of the park. Health officials have officially confirmed two cases of the virus, with the other reports remain consistent with the symptoms of the gastrointestinal illness. Fortunately, there has been a decline in new cases recently.

In the meantime, park officials are investigating the circumstances around the illness and interviewing affected people. The park has enhanced sanitation protocols in its restaurants and hotels to prevent further spread of the disease.

Even if you don’t manage a large national park, you still have a responsibility to protect facility residents from germs. Learn how implementing an aggressive cleaning and disinfection plan can help protect yourself and others in your building against norovirus.
