This document offers comprehensive guidance on cleaning and disinfection practices for non-healthcare workplaces during the COVID-19 pandemic. It outlines that COVID-19 primarily spreads through respiratory droplets and touching contaminated surfaces, suggesting that regular and thorough cleaning and disinfection of these surfaces are critical. A risk assessment should inform the frequency and scope of cleaning. The document recommends daily cleaning and disinfection, especially for high-touch surfaces, with more frequent cleaning if the workplace is in shifts or if equipment is shared. Standard cleaning using water and detergent is typically sufficient, but disinfection is necessary for frequently touched surfaces. After cleaning, surfaces should be disinfected based on the risk assessment. For efficiency, a combined detergent and disinfectant can be used. The guidance covers different areas like retail, transportation, gyms, and more.
