With more people going back to work, keeping your facility properly sanitized is critical. But not all recommendations and protocols make sense, thus making them hard to follow. The CDC has outlined—in plain language—standard, everyday steps for safely and effectively cleaning workspaces, living spaces and other areas.
The guidance includes:
- how to safely clean and disinfect
- what protective items to wear
- what disinfectants and solutions to use
- how often to routinely clean
- how to make a bleach solution
- cleaning soft surfaces
- cleaning electronics such as tablets, touch screens and remotes
- doing laundry for someone who is sick
- cleaning and disinfecting outdoor areas
- alternative disinfection methods
- other safety precautions
The CDC’s guidance also includes how to clean and disinfect your building or facility if someone is sick. Plus additional considerations for employers so you can develop procedures and train staff to properly clean, disinfect and recognize symptoms.
