Prevention of norovirus infection in schools and childcare facilities - Public Consultation
In line with ECDC’s commitment to openness and transparency, and in order to receive comments from the scientific community and stakeholders, ECDC is launching a public consultation on the technical report “Prevention of norovirus infection in schools and childcare facilities”.
This technical report synthesises current international guideline recommendations and reviews findings related to the prevention and control of gastroenteritis outbreaks in schools and child care facilities. The particular focus of the report is on norovirus, which is one of the most common causes of childhood gastroenteritis and with epidemiological characteristics that promote a high rate of infectivity and transmission.
The report also aims to contribute to identifying the key facts that can support message development for the implementation of health communication activities in child care settings.
