It’s been nearly a year since the rise of Coronavirus and with it came the changes and adjustments we’ve had to make to the work environment. In the past, disinfecting had generally been reserved for kitchens and restrooms. Now “touch point” disinfecting has become a standard inclusion in the majority of cleaning programs. Most of the folks responsible for the maintenance of their work spaces have had to pivot quickly and figure out a way to effectively keep things disinfected on a larger scale and safe for their employees.
So the question that begs answering is “Now what?” With the prospect of reopening and potentially bringing back the workforce into the building, where do we go from here? How often should disinfecting be done? Is disinfecting needed going to be a nightly routine occurrence or more as an “add needed” event?
The CDC continues to recommend performing routine cleaning and disinfecting. They state “maintaining a plan to perform regular cleanings to reduce the reduce the risk of exposure… and routinely clean all frequently touched surfaces in the workplace” as the first step in keeping a work place infection free followed by disinfecting with an EPA certified disinfectant. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/guidance-business-response.html#anchor_1609684800152
