Control and Prevention

Removal of germs such as the virus that causes COVID-19 requires thorough cleaning followed by disinfection.

Coronaviruses can survive on surfaces for many hours or more, therefore it is good practice to routinely clean surfaces as follows:

Clean frequently touched surfaces with detergent solution

Including door handles, tabletops, light switches.

- Should be frequently, mechanically cleaned.

- Detergent solution or detergent/ disinfectant wipes can be used (so long as mechanical cleaning is achieved).


Clean general surfaces and fittings when visibly soiled and immediately after any spillage

Including floors, ceilings, walls, blinds.

- Detergent solution/wipes are adequate for cleaning general surfaces and non-patient care areas.

- Damp mopping is preferable to dry mopping.

- Walls and blinds should be cleaned when visibly dusty or soiled.

- Window curtains should be regularly changed in addition to being cleaned when soiled.

- Sinks and basins should be cleaned on a regular basis.


How can we help to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

- Hand hygiene is the single most important way to prevent the spread of infection.

- Sneeze/cough etiquette and respiratory hygiene is the best defense against respiratory viruses.

- Practice physical distancing (stay more than 1.5 meters from people, if possible) and if unwell, avoid contact with others.
