Coronavirus Awareness in East Mountain
Everyone has a part to play in East Mountain as we work to slow down and contain the coronavirus pandemic. Doing your part can help ensure that hospitals do not become overwhelmed. This can help limit the damage caused by the coronavirus in our area. The EPA and the CDC have both issued recommendations that can help you determine how to help during this challenging time.
According to the CDC, one of the best things you can do to slow the coronavirus is focus on proper hand washing techniques. This means that you should wash your hands for at least 20 seconds. You should wash your hands each time you are around someone ill, after you clean, after you remove gloves, and following a sneeze or a cough.
Additionally, it’s important to focus on keeping your property clean and sanitized. Both commercial and residential property owners can focus on sanitization. In order to sanitize your property, you should clean surfaces with soap and water first. Then, you can sanitize the surfaces using:
- A disinfectant approved by the EPA
- A diluted bleach solution
- A solution that is at least 70% alcohol
Note that you may need to pursue extra steps if someone who was ill visited your property. You may restrict access to areas where the person visited and air them out for at least 24 hours. You should be aware that if the person was not in your property within 7 days, the CDC does not recommend additional cleaning or disinfection.
