We received a notice from the Princeton Health Department regarding reports of increased gastrointestinal illness, with Novovirus the suspected cause.
Among the prevention tips from the department’s Jeffrey C. Grosser:
Don’t touch your face or put your hand near your mouth
Use soap, not sanitizer, when washing your hands. “Hand sanitizers are not effective against most GI causing organisms, including norovirus.”
I didn’t know that.
