Stay Healthy At Tournaments!

Hand Washing is important during events.At a recent football tournament over Thanksgiving weekend in Las Vegas, dozens of players, coaches, and parents fell ill. The flu-like symptoms affected more than 10% of the teams participating. Of those infected, two had confirmed cases of norovirus, a common illness among cruise ship passengers.

During big events with potential interaction with hundreds of people, attendees and participants should take proper precautions. This includes routine hand washing and being smart when sharing food and water with others.

Have you had a situation like this happen at an event? Has it changed your behavior? Let us know in the comments below.

    Traveling for sports is a big deal. Eating right, getting enough sleep, and watching out for your health is a lot harder on the road than it is as home. Make sure your team is getting the right kind of food to fuel their performance, is washing their hand to stop the spread of germs, and encourage them to not share water bottles!
