The Stomach Flu That Isn't The Flu!
With the cold weather upon us and people gathered inside more often, this is when we start to see more and more cases of the norovirus. It's often referred to as a "stomach flu", but it's not the flu as there is no vaccine and your only defense is to stay away from the virus. The CDC has put together some helpful tips
, but the best defense is still regular hand washing with soap and water! Just using the alcohol-based hand sanitizers just don't work. Remember that if you have the norovirus, don't prepare food for other people as it takes a very small amount of the virus to infect others and it can survive in temperatures up to 140 degrees. At Blue Hills we take our cleanliness seriously and it's why we make sure that all our tables and equipment are regularly wiped down with the proper sanitizing and cleaning products. Make sure you do the same at home!
