Over 200 people have so far reported that they are experiencing the symptoms of Norovirus after visiting the L’Auberge Casino in Lake Charles last week, and that figure could be much higher, with many people not having reported their symptoms.
Being such a highly contagious illness and one that does affect lots of people in the winter months, anyone that is experiencing it should ensure they wash their hand thoroughly and also keep all areas of their homes disinfected to stop the spread of the virus to other members of their family.
Whilst such an outbreak is not unusual, it is a timely reminder of the dangers one does face when simply going to a casino to gamble, as with so many people inside most casinos, and with them in close proximately to each other, there is always the chance that anyone suffering from Norovirus is going to pass it onto a large number of people inside a casino and very quickly too.
Over in Macau, the local authorities have requested all casinos close their doors for two weeks, due to the outbreak of the much more serious Coronavirus outbreak that is having a devastating effect on all countries in the Far East.
The symptoms of Norovirus are very easy to spot as they lead to people suffering from uncontrollable vomiting and diarrhoea that can last for quite some time.
There is however nothing more than ensuring their venues are clean and their customers have access to handwash dispensers regarding ways that a casino can help reduce the risk of a Norovirus outbreak,
Anyone that has visited the L’Auberge Casino in Lake Charles last week who is suffering from the symptoms of Norovirus is advised to fill out a survey which can be found on the Department of Health website.
