How To Help Protect Yourself from COVID-19 (Corona Virus)
This is a general guideline for the proactive cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces to help minimize the transmission of emergent viral pathogens including coronavirus disease 2019 (abbreviated “COVID-19”).
The CDC encourages the cleaning of high touch surfaces such as counters, tabletops, doorknobs, bathroom fixtures, toilets, phones, keyboards, tablets, and tables at a minimum.
These same surfaces are mentioned in the CDCs guidance for commercial spaces as well.
Cleaning removes the soil and dirt that harbors the infectious agents, while disinfecting kills the remaining environmental pathogens.
Cleaning is a necessary first step in disinfecting a surface. Both cleaning and disinfecting must be a part of your scope of work and plan.
In addition to keeping and implementing a good cleaning regime, it is encouraged to:
- Wash your hands regularly, keeping your hands out of and away from your mouth/face.
- Implement social distancing & staying home when possible.
- When you have to be in public or attend meetings, try to keep the gatherings to 10 people OR less and keep at least 6 feet of distance between each other.
