According to the Department’s advice, cleaning and disinfection of establishments and premises is much more important than it was prior to the implementation of COVID-19. Cleaning procedures should include regular and routine cleaning and disinfection of commonly used surfaces such as counters, tables, mobile workstations, door handles, light switches, keyboards, telephones, sinks, and faucets. These surfaces should be cleaned with soap and water and then disinfected with a product that is effective against SARS-CoV-2.
Follow the instructions for use of your disinfectant, as they may contain special information or safety requirements. Wear gloves and any other personal protective equipment recommended in the disinfectant’s instructions for use when cleaning and disinfecting the premises. When cleaning electronic equipment, check the manufacturer’s instructions and consider purchasing waterproof covers to prevent equipment from getting wet.
Companies can benefit from setting up separate shifts from each other to avoid too much mixing of employees. Masks should be worn and hands should be washed regularly. Allowing sufficient time to clean work surfaces between shifts will reduce the risk of transmission of the virus through both direct and secondary contact.
