Over the last week, we have been inundated with clients and potential clients asking for advice, hand sanitizer and deeps cleaning because of the recent Coronavirus outbreak. This is a short brief of the information we have given them.
Do you need a deep clean?
Probably not at the moment unless you have a confirmed case of Coronavirus. Coronavirus as of this moment hasn’t been proven to last more than 4 hours on a hard surface and therefore deep cleaning wouldn’t be worth it unless you are doing it every day.
Washing your hands
As your mum always told you, wash your hands and don’t pick your nose. This is still the best advice. Try to avoid touching your face too much and make sure you wash your hands regularly and thoroughly using an antibacterial hand wash for at least 20 seconds (Sing the ABC song or happy birthday twice).
Using hand sanitizer
The country is currently on backorder of hand sanitizer, if you can’t/don’t have any then use an antibacterial handwash, however, this is running short. Another option is to use an antibacterial multipurpose spray, look on the back of the spray, most will say something along the lines of Kills 99.99% of E.Coli and Influenza, these are the ones you want, spray this on your hands, then give them a wash with normal hand soap.

Coughing and Sneezing
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or using a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Then dispose of the used tissue immediately. Try to be at least 6 feet away from anyone when coughing or sneezing.
Clean Your Workstation
Ultimately your team needs to be responsible for their workstation. Make sure that they have all the tools needed, antibacterial cleaner, clean cloths and masks if you feel these are needed.
