With the rising number of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 cases across the U.S., many companies are struggling with how to prepare for a potential outbreak in their workplace. This respiratory disease (COVID-19) may cause mild to severe illness in infected people and is transmitted primarily through the droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. While we’re learning new things about how the virus reacts every day, it’s been shown to remain viable on surfaces for hours to days and it may also be possible to contract the virus by touching contaminated surfaces.
That makes it critical to develop and implement appropriate workplace controls to systematically minimize risk for exposure for workers and customers, and establish a response protocol to disinfect rooms or areas where personnel with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 have visited.
