According to the CDC, cleaning and disinfecting are key to limiting exposure and maintaining a safe environment during the Covid-19 pandemic. Reduce the spread of germs by keeping surfaces clean and reminding students of the importance of hand hygiene. Where possible, remove items from common areas that are unnecessary or difficult to clean and disinfect.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces and objects within the classroom, such as door handles, desks and chairs, light switches. This should be at least daily or between use by different students. Limit the use of shared object when possible.
Close off areas used by a sick person and don’t use these areas until they have been cleaned and disinfected.
Store cleaning and disinfection products out of reach of students, in a secure location and keep product lids closed. Always follow the directions on the label of the product you are using. Never mix different products together.
