Jump to last reply

Norovirus is nothing new. But this is a new one. A group of 25 passenegrs in UK are suing RCCL for big bucks. The link to the Wlaes News online is below.

As if there is not enpugh bad news for RCCL, The Celebrity Constellation had to delay their departure due to over 350 passenegrs fell ill from Norovirus over the wekend.

All I can say is that, we, as passenegrs, have to take some responsibilities and precautions to avoid potential health issues.

I do not touch the hand rails when going up and down the stairs; or any railings at any of the public areas. I also don't touch any door handles to any public washrooms. If I must touch it, I wash my hand throughly both before and after. I wash my hands often; and use hand santiziers where needed.

With that said, I am not paranoid enough to use a handi-wipe and wipe down seats and the trays on an airplane. But, I will wipe down the steering wheel of a rental car.

What precautrions do you take to make yourself safe?
