U.S. Government Publishes Guidance on Cleaning and Disinfecting to Reduce COVID-19 Risks


By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) have published comprehensive guidance to ensure cleanliness and safety as Americans reopen businesses, schools, homes and public spaces. The guidance walks through how companies should develop, implement and maintain a plan for cleaning and disinfecting workplaces. It includes an EPA list of disinfectant products that can be used against COVID-19, including ready-to-use sprays, concentrates and wipes, and alternative disinfectants that can be used when EPA-approved disinfectants are unavailable. The guidance reviews social distancing practices and ways to reduce the potential for exposure and includes links to many other related resources.
