Recent strains of Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) have grown rapidly around the globe. The symptoms of coronavirus are different from a cold/flu. The coronavirus usually appears between two and 14 days after exposure. People who have coronavirus often feel some or all of these symptoms: mild to severe respiratory illness, fever or feeling feverish/chills, cough, sore throat, and shortness of breath. There is concern that this strain can be infectious before people show symptoms.
When faced with specific challenges, it is important to understand the liability potential and responsibility under the law to follow the precise instruction for use sites, applications, and microorganism kill claims, listed on the products’ packaging. Remember that a sanitizer doesn’t kill like a disinfectant; THEY ARE NOT THE SAME. Consider that the specific virus or microorganism must be EPA registered and listed on the product packaging. Also respect that without the EPA registered listing on the label the product cannot be used for that specific application, by law. Contractors and industry professionals must educate themselves to prevent liability from false claims or improper use based on the labeling. We proudly use a safe and a certify brand of disinfectant for our decontamination services.
Coronavirus outbreaks is now a pandemic. This virus can live on a surface for hours and possibly as long as a day, depending on temperature and humidity. But Coronavirus can be controlled. Although it’s labor intensive an outbreak can be contained with basic cleaning and disinfecting techniques. Special attention should be paid to common “hot spot” or high touch points like door handles, faucets, water fountain knobs, or even toys that are used by multiple children throughout the day.
