No new cases of norovirus at Glasgow Marriott

No new cases of suspected norovirus have been reported at a Glasgow hotel hit by an outbreak of diarrhoea and vomiting, health officials have said.

Fifteen guests and four members of staff have fallen ill at the Marriott hotel in the city centre.

NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (GGC) said it was continuing to monitor the situation and infection control measures would stay in place.

None of the 19 people affected were giving cause for concern.

Hygiene rules

Dr Gillian Penrice, NHS GGC public health consultant, said: "It is encouraging that no further cases have been reported. However, we will continue to monitor the situation closely and the infection control measures will remain in place to limit any potential further spread.

"The clinical presentation of those guests and staff affected is suggestive of norovirus infection.

"Our advice to those guests in the hotel who are not symptomatic and to those who are due to check in is the same as it is for any community case - to follow strict hygiene rules such as regular hand washing."

Anyone who has either stayed or worked at the hotel or used its facilities and is experiencing diarrhoea, vomiting or a fever and is advised to contact NHS24 or their GP.
