HRS: Be Sure to Bring Your Lomotil

I'll be heading to the Heart Rhythm Society Meeting in San Francisco tomorrow, and just received this e-mail:
Dear Heart Rhythm 2008 Attendees and Exhibitors,

The Heart Rhythm Society has learned from the San Francisco Department of Public Health that there have been reported cases of what is suspected to be norovirus in the San Francisco area. A number of those affected were attending an earlier event at the Moscone Convention Center.

As you know, Heart Rhythm 2008 is scheduled to take place at the Moscone Center, May 14-17. The Convention Center and city health officials have put measures in place to disinfect the facility and are continuing with the current schedule of events. Therefore, Heart Rhythm 2008 is scheduled to continue as planned.

We will continue to update all attendees and exhibitors via e-mail and ww.HRSonline.org should new information become available.

For more information on norovirus, please visit the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/dvrd/revb/gastro/norovirus.htm.

We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco.

The Heart Rhythm Society
Gee, I can't wait...
