Sanitizing highly touched equipment at least once a day.
Sanitizing highly touched equipment at least once a day. Like pens, counters, doorknobs, light switches and stair railings. This is where all the germs and viruses that are not already airborne hang out and wait for their ticket to your body; namely your fingers and hands!
When cleaning your personal space in your workplace, use products that clean and disinfect all at once, such as store-bought disinfectant solutions or wipes, when available.
The Government of Canada has published a list of hard-surface disinfectants that are likely to be effective for use against (COVID-19). This list is updated regularly.
Keep furniture sanitized & clean.
At the end of the day, wipe down chairbacks, armrests, tabletops, etc.
Fabric furnishings like chair seats, couches or others can accumulate germs and other viruses and studies show COVID can live on these surfaces.
We recommend spot cleaning, vacuuming, and then use a spray like Lysol over the surface. This is best at the end of the day to allow that surface to dry.
