When someone who has COVID-19 coughs or exhales they release droplets of infected fluid. Most of these droplets fall on nearby surfaces and objects, such as desks, tables or telephones. People could catch COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces or objects, and then touching their eyes, nose, or mouth. This can be very risky especially when more employees are going back to work. In other words, more possibilities for the virus to spread in a confined space. 


1. Make sure your workplaces are clean and hygienic

Surfaces (e.g. desks and chairs) and objects (e.g. telephones, keyboards) need to be wiped with disinfectant regularly. Why? Because contamination on surfaces touched by employees and customers is one of the main ways that COVID-19 spreads.

2. Promote regular and thorough hand-washing by employees

In prominent positions around the office, put the sanitizing hand rub dispensers. Verify that these dispensers are refilled daily. Display posters encouraging hand-washing, such as instructions from occupational health and safety officers, meetings briefings and intranet information to encourage hand-washing.

3. Carpet and Tile Cleaning

Protects indoor air quality. Carpets trap airborne pollutants; however, eventually those pollutants must be removed in order to protect the carpet and maintain indoor air quality. Regular carpet cleaning minimizes the likelihood of stains becoming permanent. Food stains, for instance, can stick on the carpet and may be hard to remove. If the carpet is not cleaned, then the stain will be permanent. Treating the stains as quickly as possible is essential since the quicker you act, the less likely for the stain to penetrate deep down into the carpet fibers and dried up.

4. Have disinfectant wipes available

Disinfectant wipes are very useful to keep the office clean because employees may wipe their desks with those disinfectant wipes. Wipes for disinfectants are an convenient way to sanitize workplace and can help prevent disease spread.

5. Empty the bins daily

If food gets burned onto the bottom of your pot or pan fix it quickly without having to scrub it forever. Simple add one cup of warm water and one cup of vinegar into the pot or pan. Then add two to four tablespoons of baking soda and pour out the mixture into the sink. Use a sponge to wipe away any residue left with ease and then rinse and wash as usual.
