We are beginning peak Norovirus season and the Association of Food and Drug Officials (AFDO) has a webinar and CDC handouts and posters online that you can use to prevent or respond to Norovirus incidents. The webinar speakers are Dr. Aron Hall and Dr. Laura Brown from CDC, and DJ Irving from the Tennessee Department of Health.
