Grand Forks AFB public health team acts fast to combat virus

Airmen with the 319th Logistics Readiness Squadron work together to fill a small pool with soapy water to clean thousands of toys January 18, 2019, on Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota. Toys from the Child Development Center and Youth Programs went through a deep-clean over a period of several days: first soaked in a bleach solution, then hand-scrubbed in soapy water and rinsed with clean water before being left to air-dry. The thorough process ensured once sanitized, all frequently-used toys could be returned to base children without risk re-infecting them with a gastrointestinal virus which affected nearly more than 100 personnel and family members in the weeks prior.
