If an outbreak of food poisoning occurs on holiday a number of general measures should be implemented by hotel staff and holidaymakers to limit further spread. They should be undertaken once the local authorities have been notified and include: thorough hand washing after going to the toilet and before eating food; reviewing hygiene procedures and food preparation areas; and ensuring that all affected food handlers do not return to work until they are given the all clear by their doctor.

Holidays to Skanes and Mahdia are ideal for those who worship the sun – it’s all about the beaches in these destinations as there is limited nightlife. Skanes is located on Tunisia’s Eastern Coast between Sousse and Monasir, whilst the town of Mahdia with its endless beaches is further south.
Holidaymakers staying in Skanes or Mahdia who ingest contaminated food and suffer diarrhoea – malaise – nausea – fever and severe stomach cramps as a result are advised to seek medical treatment from a doctor.
