Prevent the Spread of Sickness in the Workplace!

The same products and procedures that prevent and reduce the spread of viruses hold true with bacteria and other germs.

If you are concerned about keeping your employees and visitors safe, here are top recommendations from the CDC (Center for Disease Control):

  1. Employees with a fever must stay home. If they report having a fever or think they are sick, they should see their doctor avoid work and other public places.
  2. Frequently and thoroughly clean surfaces that come into contact with multiple people, such as shared computers, light switches, doorknobs, toilets, faucets, and more.
  3. Disinfect surfaces to kill germs. Use EPA-approved products that can fight bacteria and viruses, such as CleanMatters365, Clorox, Lysol, Peroxide disinfectant, SaniZide, and others.
  4. Keep restrooms and other common areas stocked with disinfecting hand soap or alcohol-based hand sanitizer and encourage all staff to practice good handwashing practices, including using soap and water and scrubbing hands for a minimum of 20 seconds.

What is NOT Useful

According to CDC:

Alternative Disinfection Methods

  • The effectiveness of alternative surface disinfection methodsexternal icon, such as ultrasonic waves, high intensity UV radiation, and LED blue light against the virus that causes COVID-19 has not been fully established.
  • CDC does not recommend the use of sanitizing tunnels. Currently, there is no evidence that sanitizing tunnels are effective in reducing the spread of COVID-19. Chemicals used in sanitizing tunnels could cause skin, eye, or respiratory irritation or injury.
  • In most cases, fogging, fumigation, and wide-area or electrostatic spraying are not recommended as primary methods of surface disinfection and have several safety risks to consider, unless specified as a method of application on the product label.
