Staff members that are responsible for cleaning an area where someone with COVID- 19 has been exposed, will wear uniforms (or designated work clothes) and disposable gloves when cleaning and handling trash. These particular staff members will have a change of clothes at the end of cleaning that specific area. The clothing worn while cleaning will be placed in a plastic bag until it can be laundered. As a precaution, all staff members will keep a spare change of clothing at work.
All staff members are receiving training pertaining to cleaning and disinfecting thoroughly, using disinfectants safely and effectively and to safely clean up potentially infectious materials and body fluids – blood, vomit, feces, and urine.
