What is Giardiasis?

Giardia is a microscopic parasite that can be passed on via contaminated water, food and contact between infected people.  The parasite is protected by a protective outer shell which means it can survive for long periods and have some resistance to chlorine.  Transmission via infected water is most common.

What are the symptoms?

The most common symptoms are diarrhoea, bloating, stomach pain and sometimes weight loss.

How is Giardiasis treated?

The infection can be treated with antibiotics.  The symptoms usually subside after around a week, though sometimes they can last longer.

What steps should hotels take to prevent and control outbreaks?

  • Practice good hygiene and have proper hand washing facilities for staff and guests
  • Ensure pools and water supplies are correctly treated, and take appropriate steps when possible faecal infection takes place
  • Ensure food is washed in safe, uncontaminated water
  • Take steps to prevent cross-contamination and disinfect surfaces
  • Inform guests of any outbreak
