Environmental Cleaning and Disinfection Recommendations!
There is to much learn about the novel coronavirus that causes (COVID-2019). Based on what is currently known about the virus, spread from person-to-person happens most frequently among close contacts (within about 6 feet). This type of transmission occurs via respiratory droplets. Transmission of novel coronavirus to persons from surfaces contaminated with the virus has not been documented. Transmission of coronavirus in general occurs much more commonly through respiratory droplets than through fomites. Current evidence suggests that novel coronavirus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of visibly dirty surfaces followed by disinfection is a best practice measure for prevention of COVID-19 and other viral respiratory illnesses in community settings.
This guidance provides recommendations on the cleaning and disinfection of rooms or areas of those with suspected or with confirmed COVID-19 cases. It's aimed at limiting the survival of novel coronavirus in key environments. These recommendations will be updated if additional information becomes available.
These guidelines are focused on community, non-healthcare facilities, schools, institutions of higher education, offices, daycare centers, businesses, and community centers that do not house persons overnight. These guidelines are not meant for cleaning staff in healthcare facilities or repatriation sites, households, or for others for whom specific guidance already exist.
