Highlights from the Cleaning for COVID-19 infographic above

COVID-19 (novel coronavirus 2019) is a respiratory illness that primarily spreads through the air and through personal contact with surfaces and infected people. COVID-19 is an enveloped virus, meaning it is easily compromised by proper cleaning and sanitizing. It is unknown how long COVID-19 can survive on surfaces,
but it is recommended to clean and sanitize high contact surfaces at home, school, and the work place.
  • Remove visible soil and dirt from surfaces using soap and water.
  • Apply an EPA registered disinfectant to kill pathogens, including COVID-19.

Common cleaners include:

  • Clorox Disinfecting Wipes
  • Lysol Brand Bleach Multi-Purpose Cleaner
  • Purell Multi Surface Disinfectant

For effective sanitizing, wait the proper contact time as indicated on the product label.
