Yes: I agree that the message has finally gotten through that people should wash their hands. Perhaps H1N1 gave people that extra push they needed.

People are more educated in the spread of norovirus. A few months ago there was a norovirus thread on the boards and some people actually thought that norovirus was not spread by people who did not wash their hands.

A couple of people actually made fun of the ship's doctors who sent out messages asking people to wash their hands after using the toilet.

Not washing your hands is about the only way it's spread.

Take care,
