Preparing for and Responding to Coronavirus in the Workplace

A new study from National Institutes of Health, CDC, UCLA and Princeton University scientists found that severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) was detectable in aerosols for up to three hours, up to four hours on copper, up to 24 hours on cardboard, and up to three days on plastic and stainless steel. The results provide key information about the stability of SARS-CoV-2, which causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), suggesting people may acquire the virus through the air and after touching contaminated objects. Does your facility have a plan if one of your employees test positive for COVID-19?
 
Some international destinations as well as parts of the United States now have ongoing community spread with the virus that causes COVID-19. Community spread means people have been infected, and it is not known how or where they became exposed. Prevent the spread of coronavirus within your workforce by utilizing ClorDiSys Solutions’ high-level disinfection services in your facility’s high traffic areas. Our company offers three reasonably-priced decontamination options for all of your company’s shared space concerns including lobbies, conference rooms, cafeterias, bathrooms, and locker rooms.
  1. Electrostatic spraying with chlorine dioxide, minncare, sodium hypochlorite, or other agent of your choice to eliminate organisms on surfaces for pinpoint disinfection
  2. Electrostatic spraying with BioBlock 90, a disinfecting agent that doubles as a protection layer from organisms for up to 90 days
  3. Quick, chemical free, UV-C facility disinfection: UV-C is the killing spectrum of ultraviolet light proven effective against bacteria, viruses, fungi, and spores including SARS-CoV
Protect your team and your business from viruses, bacteria, spores, and other harmful organisms.
