It's not IN the hotels it's in the dirty people who have no hygiene sense that are causing this bug to go round, just be extra cautious ie wash your hands more regular with soap not just water

No worries we go in 2 weeks not going to let it spoil ours either even though scaremongers keep trying. Boots do an anti viral foam which is best for the norovirus bug, just enjoy yourselves Pefkos is great.

Hi Gillylizzie, we have been this year and last year, the gastric bug was about both times but luckily we didn't catch it either time, the bug is still around, dont let it spoil your holiday as not everyone is getting it, just try to be careful, unfortunately just using gel on your hands isnt going to stop it as they say its airborne, so people coughing, sneezing etc spread it into the air, people are not scaremongering or trying to ruin anybodies holiday, but by keeping people informed it helps others to be more careful so they can enjoy their holidays, go and enjoy it as Pefkos is a lovely place.

I've been to Pefkos 4 times and been perfectly ok just using normal hygiene standards. Its a clean resort so don't worry just enjoy yourselves.
