Cleaning Tips

It is not certain how long COVID-19 survives on surfaces so it’s important to clean frequently.

Here’s what you can do around the home to protect yourself against COVID-19:

  • Frequently clean high-touch items like light switches, door handles, car steering wheels and dashboards, taps, hand rails and toilet flushers.
  • Frequently clean hand-held items like phones, remote controls, video game controllers and keyboards.
  • Regularly clean kids’ toys
  • Use a disinfectant with a minimum of 60% alcohol
  • Clean surfaces with hot soapy water and let them dry before using a disinfectant
  • Use disinfectants as per manufacturer’s instructions.
