- Outsmart the Transmission of Norovirus with a New Foodservice Tool
ON DEMAND: Up to 60% of all illnesses and outbreaks each year in restaurants can be traced to norovirus. Ignoring the potential for a norovirus outbreak can be costly in addition to the harm it causes customers and the residual damage to a restaurant’s reputation. Norovirus is a particularly serious threat because it’s difficult to kill, persistent- surviving on surfaces for weeks, and is highly contagious, even in very small amounts. The restaurant environment has a number of transmission points on surfaces where the virus can be found better known as “hot spots. This webinar will show how to use sanitation of these hot spots to reduce the risk of norovirus transmission in a restaurant.
