As the second wave of COVID-19 and the beginning of cold and flu season nears, keeping your business clean becomes all the more important. But what if you’ve had a COVID-19 exposure at your business? Maybe it was a staff member who wasn’t showing symptoms or a customer that was later tested positive – either way, it’s important that you respond quickly and ensure your space is clean so you can quickly reopen.
Here are our tips for getting your space sanitized and ready to re-open if your business has been impacted by a COVID-19 exposure.
By being proactive with your safety and cleanliness measures, any exposure in your workplace should be limited. By keeping high-touch surfaces and common areas clean throughout the day, wearing masks, and practicing social distancing, the likelihood of transmission is low. If there is a confirmed exposure at your business, work to determine which areas may have been impacted, and focus on disinfecting and closing off these areas first.
Wait 24 Hours Before Cleaning
As per the CDC guidelines, wait 24 hours before cleaning to reduce the chance of being exposed to any potential respiratory droplets. This allows any droplets to evaporate and makes it much less likely that anyone who is cleaning will come into contact with droplets that carry disease.
