Perform routine cleaning and disinfection
Follow the Guidance for Cleaning and Disinfecting to develop, implement, and maintain a plan to perform regular cleanings to reduce the risk of exposure to SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
Routinely clean all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace, such as workstations, keyboards, telephones, handrails, and doorknobs. Keep hand sanitizers if you have a store where people / customers are always coming in.
If surfaces are dirty, clean them using a detergent or soap and water before you disinfect them.
For disinfection, most common, EPA-registered, household disinfectants should be effective. A list of products that are EPA-approved for use against the virus that causes COVID-19external icon is available on the EPA website. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for all cleaning and disinfection products (e.g., concentration, application method, and contact time).
Discourage workers from using each other’s phones, desks, offices, or other work tools and equipment, when possible.
Provide disposable disinfecting wipes so that employees can wipe down commonly used surfaces (e.g., doorknobs, keyboards, remote controls, desks, other work tools and equipment) before each use.
Store and use disinfectants in a responsible and appropriate manner according to the label. Do not mix bleach or other cleaning and disinfection products together. This can cause fumes that may be very dangerous to breathe in.
Ensure there is adequate ventilation when using cleaning and disinfection products. Advise employees to always wear gloves appropriate for the chemicals being used when they are cleaning and disinfecting and that they may need additional PPE based on the setting and product.
Perform cleaning and disinfection after persons suspected/confirmed to have COVID-19 have been in the building.
If a sick employee is suspected or confirmed to have COVID-19, follow the CDC cleaning and disinfection recommendations.
