The Coronavirus is having a major impact on the global economy. And while the closings of schools, the cancellation of events, and the requests for social distancing are significantly affecting millions of businesses, millions of others remain open for business.
Those that need to stay open should be proactive about cleaning practices. Keeping the workplace clean can limit exposure to COVID-19. So, follow these tips to keep your workplace clean, yourself healthy, and help prevent the spread of the this and other viruses.
Wash your hands … a lot.
The CDC has said that keeping hands clean is one of the most important steps to avoid the spread of germs. The agency recommends washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially:
- After using the bathroom.
- Before, during and after food preparation.
- Before eating food.
- After blowing their nose, coughing, or sneezing.
- After touching communal office equipment.
Disinfect your work area.
Make a habit of routinely disinfecting all frequently touched surfaces, including desks, keyboards, work phones, kitchen refrigerator handles, doorknobs, and copiers. Alcohol solutions with at least 70 percent alcohol, diluted bleach, and hydrogen peroxide are all effective against coronavirus on hard surfaces.
