Am looking for THE correct answer from someone who KNOWS to stop the bickering on these threads.
We don't hear or read a lot about other illnesses here, so NORO will be the subject. Do the hand sanitizers kill the virus?
On almost every thread, I read "how yucky, that person did not use the sanitizer". Then I read that the sanitizer does NOT kill the NORO. If it does not kill noro, is it there to make us feel better? Personally, I don't mind the hand sanitizer. I don't use one at home, but it is no skin off my nose to do so.
As to hand washing. That sounds like a great idea, and I agree with those who advocate. However, watch as someone leaves the rest room. I bet between there and the Horizon Court or MDR, that person will touch 10 different surfaces before beginning a meal. Ideally, there would be a hand washing station at the entrance to the dining venue, but that ain't gonna happen.
We can't live in a balloon. I am not going to start shaking someone's hand with a baggie on. Sorry for being long winded. Thread after thread with all the hand wringing(pun intended) and whether or not this is good or that is better. So lets get a final answer on the hand sanitizer, I would like to know.
