Hand sanitizers still in use? "Corporate" has decided to eliminate them??

Recommended Posts

It would be very foolish to get rid of them because although hand washing is superior, many people don’t take the time to use the sinks in the buffet. I’d rather have a fellow pax use hand sanitizer than use nothing before grabbing the serving utensils!

Alcohol based hand-sanitizers are largely ineffective at killing fecal bacteria, which is the primary cause of norovirus.  Proper hand washing is the only effective means to kill the bacteria and prevent the spread of norovirus.  This may have played into any decision to cut down/eliminate hand sanitizer being provided.



The article says “not as effective,” not “largely ineffective.”  Hand sanitizer helps kill Norovirus, but nothing is fail proof.

Are people stupid? You be the judge.

This year a poll by Pew University found that 13 % of Americans believe that "Judge Judy" is on the Supreme Court.

In that same study one-third of Americans could not name even 3 judges who are actually on the Supreme court.

26% of Americans believe that the Sun revolves around the Earth.

20% of Americans believe in witches and witchcraft.

5% of Americans believe that the Earth is flat.


Do you think that any of those people ever go on a cruise?

Wait,  the sun doesn’t revolve around the earth?


lol.  Gotcha.  Just kidding.
