Norovirus: Protecting Your Company's Employees, Customers & Visitors

Here's an excerpt from the Allentown Morning Call of February 12, 2015:

More than 100 East Stroudsburg University students have been stricken with a fast-moving, hard-hitting gastrointestinal infection, the university said Thursday.

Pocono Medical Center saw 62 ESU students from Wednesday through Thursday morning, admitting eight and sending the rest home after treatment, according to Geoffrey Roche, the hospital's spokesman. He said he hadn't seen anything quite like this in his seven years at the hospital.

Roche said Pocono Medical Center, a 235-bed facility, is isolating ESU students with gastrointestinal symptoms so the infection doesn't spread to other patients. "We prepare for this all the time," he said. "We're in very good shape."

The symptoms point to a virus, according to an ESU alert sent to students Wednesday.

About 42 students sought treatment between 10 p.m. Tuesday and noon Wednesday at the hospital or the college's Health Services Center, the alert read. That number had nearly tripled by 2 p.m. Thursday. Resident students as well as commuters have reported the illness. Those experiencing symptoms, chiefly vomiting, were asked to remain home.

Norovirus – a common virus that cause acute gastroenteritis in humans. Outbreaks can occur in any public area where germs are easily transferred. The situation at ESU has been confirmed as a Norovirus outbreak, much like the culprit in widely publicized outbreaks of gastroenteritis on cruise ships.


How is it treated? How do we better protect our employees and the general public? What is the cost and method for treatment? What does the press coverage mean to you (in bad press?)

Here at WADDEE, Inc. we have the answers – the same process used to sanitize the cruise ships in 2014 (and now a standard sanitizing process on many major cruise lines) is available to you. Whether you run a hospital, college, hospitality venue, food prep / process, or an office, germs spread fast and furious – talk to me about this revolutionary process and if it is right for you.
