We report an outbreak of norovirus gastroenteritis occurring concurrently over two wards. Environmental cleaning was managed using two different methodologies: one ward utilized the traditional 2-step method, the other using microfiber-steam technology. Environmental cleaning using the microfiber-steam technology proved to be an effective and efficient cleaning methodology, appropriate for use during an outbreak situation.
