How to Know When to Clean and When to Disinfect:
- Cleaning with products containing soap or detergent reduces germs on surfaces by removing contaminants and may also weaken or damage some of the virus particles, which decreases risk of infection from surfaces. When no people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 are known to have been in a space, cleaning is usually enough to sufficiently remove virus that may be on surfaces and help maintain a healthy facility, according to the CDC.
- Clean and disinfect in shared spaces if certain conditions apply that can increase the risk of infection from touching surfaces such as a high transmission of COVID-19 in your community, a low number of people wearing masks, infrequent hand hygiene, or the space is occupied by certain populations, such as people at increased risk for severe illness from COVID-19.
