COVID-19 Cleaning & Disinfection

WHAT IS NOVEL CORONAVIRUS (COVID-19) AND HOW IS IT SPREAD?
Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are best known for causing the common cold. They are also responsible for more serious respiratory illnesses such as SARS and MERS. The CDC says the new coronavirus can be spread from person-to-person with contact within about six feet or closer. The virus is believed to be spread between people mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, like how influenza and other respiratory illnesses spread. These drops can then be inhaled by those nearby.

The best way to prevent transmission of the virus before disinfection treatments start, according to the CDC, is to follow these 3 steps:
Clean Your Workstation
Employers should encourage employees and housekeeping staff to routinely clean all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as keyboards, remote controls, desks, countertops, and doorknobs as best as possible until a disinfection can be done.
Follow Proper Handwashing Technique
- Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold), turn off the tap and apply soap .
- Lather your hands by rubbing them together with the soap. Lather the backs of your hands between your fingers, and under your nails.
- Dry your hands using a clean towel or air dry them.
- Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds and rinse your them well under clean, running water.
Practice Sneezing and Coughing Etiquette
- Avoiding coughing or sneezing into your hands.
- Covering your mouth and nose with a tissue or upper sleeve when you cough or sneeze.
- Putting used tissue in a wastebasket.
Considering how viruses spread, people infected with COVID-19 may be spreading the virus through respiratory secretions when they cough or sneeze, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). “There is much more to learn about the transmissibility, severity, and other features associated with COVID-19 as the outbreak investigation continues.
The CDC noted that previous outbreaks of coronavirus have spread through close contact with sick people.
A critical time to practice good hygiene etiquette is when you are sick, especially when coughing or sneezing.
WILL REGULAR CLEANING PRODUCTS KILL THE VIRUS?
The US Environmental Protection Agency said coronaviruses are among “the easiest to kill with the appropriate disinfectant product.” The EPA noted that emerging viral pathogens are less common and predictable than established pathogens, so few registered disinfectant products specifically target them.
