Coronavirus and Your Organization

Cases of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus SARS-CoV-2, have been confirmed in the United States. Schools, businesses, and healthcare facilities need specific plans to prevent the virus’s spread. The Coronavirus has claimed 83,700 cases worldwide and 2,859 deaths as of the end of February.

 

COVID-19 can be prevented with attention to specific cleaning procedures. Bright Solutions has the process and products outlined for you to manage the Coronavirus threat this year.

Recommended Cleaning Protocols

Bright Solutions has a full line up of products to fit your organization’s needs. These products help reduce the risk and potential impact the novel Coronavirus poses.

Bright Solutions offers select products that qualify for the Emerging Viral Pathogen Claims per the EPA:

The CDC recommends, if there are no available EPA-registered products with the Emerging Viral Pathogen Claim, to use a EPA-registered hospital grade disinfectant with label claims against human coronaviruses and use according to label instructions.

 

Prevention Procedure

Bright Solutions, following the recommendations of the CDC, advises continuing standard procedures for routine cleaning and disinfecting. Cleaning focus should be on often touched items and surfaces:

  • Doorknobs
  • Computer Keyboards
  • Desks
  • Hands-On Learning Items
  • Faucet Handles
  • Phones

Disinfecting these items daily (if not already a part of your cleaning procedure) should be routinized and made mandatory if possible.

 

Hand Washing

It may sound obvious, but a correct handwashing procedure is a major line of defense. Here are the must-dos for handwashing:

  • Hands should be washed for at least 20 seconds using soap and water.
  • Hands should especially be washed after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol can be used.
  • Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

 

Coughing or Sneezing

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when they cough or sneeze.  Always put used tissues in a wastebasket. If a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into an upper sleeve, not hands.

 

Restroom Care

Bathrooms pose another unique challenge, because they are often contaminated with bodily fluids or blood. Restrooms should be disinfected as regularly as these other high-contact items and areas mentioned earlier.  Facility managers and cleaners should take extra care to use gloves and standard precautions when encountering bodily fluids during the Coronavirus threat.
