Infection Control Resources in Puerto Rico to Identify Norovirus and Other Pathogens in the Built Environment

Zimmetry Environmental specializes in indoor environmental quality testing, consulting, and training to detect and address exposure risks from various viral, bacterial, and fungal contaminants.

Notably, effective testing for norovirus on surfaces and environmental samples can assess the efficiency of cleaning procedures and identify outbreak sources. The CDC emphasizes norovirus as a primary cause of vomiting, diarrhea, and foodborne illness in the United States. It also warns that infection with one norovirus type does not provide immunity against others.

Norovirus, highly contagious and fast-spreading, transmits through various means. Direct contact with an infected person, sharing items, consuming contaminated food or liquids, and touching virus-contaminated surfaces are common transmission pathways, as per the CDC.

Highlighting the positive, Harry Pena, President of Zimmetry Environmental, asserts that testing surfaces for norovirus is crucial for evaluating cleaning procedures’ efficacy and pinpointing outbreak sources.

In Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, Zimmetry Environmental is committed to identifying and mitigating norovirus and other pathogen exposure risks through infection control, industrial hygiene, and indoor environmental quality services. These services are especially beneficial in facilities with vulnerable populations, such as hospitals and long-term care centers.

Zimmetry Environmental recently sponsored an educational video on norovirus and exposure risks. More information about their infection control, indoor environmental quality, compliance, and consulting services is available at or by contacting (787) 995.0005 or [email protected].

Established in 2002, Zimmetry Environmental provides environmental consulting services across the Caribbean and Central America. Their expertise includes environmental compliance, indoor air quality, asbestos, lead-based paint, Phase I ESAs, and general environmental consulting.
