Updated guidance for cleaning and disinfection of common areas

Spray bottleUF Health Screen, Test & Protect has provided updated guidance regarding best practices for cleaning and disinfecting labs, classrooms, common sitting areas, meal rooms and other community areas.

Unless a person with known or suspected COVID-19 has been in the area, no additional cleaning or sanitization measures are recommended. Routine cleaning is considered sufficient; however, Facilities Services has been advised to regularly clean common touchpoints, such as door handles, three times throughout the workday. Everyone continues to be encouraged to wash hands or use hand sanitizer after handling high-touch common-use areas.

Guidance for community areas when it has been documented and confirmed that a person with known or suspected COVID-19 has been present for 15 minutes or longer are also provided. To learn more, please visit the Screen, Test & Protect website.
