SafeHandles and CDC Protocols
The CDC recently provided more guidance and protocols on keeping facilities clean in relation to viruses and COVID-19. In their article they said, it’s possible for people to become infected if they touch a hard surface and then touch their nose, mouth, or eyes. They went on to emphasize that cleaning and disinfecting surfaces can reduce the risk of infection.
Here at SafeHandles we help offices, schools, gyms, hotels, grocery stores and other high traffic areas implement hygiene protocols that are in line with CDC recommendations.

When Should You Clean?
The answer to this depends on your situation. If no one in your facility has been confirmed or suspected of having COVID-19 then once a day is usually enough to remove virus that could be on surface.
You may want consider cleaning more frequently if there is a high-transmission of virus in your area, lower number of people wearing masks, or if people who are at a higher risk frequent your facility.
What Should Be Cleaned?
Just think about all of the surfaces you touch throughout your day: doorhandles, elevator buttons, desks, phones, shopping carts, stair railing, and even pens. All of these high-touch surfaces need to be cleaned frequently.
How Should Hard Surfaces Be Cleaned?
The CDC says to use a disinfectant product from the EPA List N that is effective against COVID-19. This ensures that it’s been tested and can be trusted.
