Environmental Health Associates, Inc. have published “Norovirus Outbreak Control Guidelines,” a valuable resource for any hospitality industry business that believes itself to be impacted by a Norovirus outbreak. The guidelines can be found at http://www.about-norwalk.com.

These guidelines should be used in conjunction with the other laws and rules governing sanitation and communicable disease control in the lodging industry and advice from medical or public health advisers. The local circumstances should always be taken into account when deciding on a plan of action.
