Cleaning and Disinfecting

CLEANING AND DISINFECTING

 

Schools will have infection control plans updated to reflect what is known about COVID-19.

These are basic cleaning definitions:

  • Cleaning removes germs, dirt, food, body fluids, and other material.
  • Sanitizing reduces germs on surfaces to safe levels.
  • Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces of a clean object.

Schools will clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces each night after students leave and when someone is sick in the room (vomit, blood, feces, urine).
