New CDC Guidance for Surface Cleaning and Disinfectants
New CDC Guidance for Surface Cleaning and Disinfectants
April 10, 2021

In April of 2021, the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued new guidance related to cleaning of surfaces and the use of disinfectants. Janitronics has been following the best practices identified by the CDC since the beginning of the pandemic. We also have been an integral component of a Boston-based health security task force to provide guidance to our stakeholders. We continue to be in alignment with the CDC, where they note that washing hands and using sanitizer is a priority. The statement continues: "Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces can also reduce the risk of infection" in a building.

 

You can read about the new guidance at the CDC here. Key points are to clean and disinfect if:


A COVID-19 infected person is known to have been in the space
Low incidence of mask-wearing
Poor hand sanitation practices are observed
Space will be occupied by high-risk population (elderly, or pre-existing conditions)


We are in close communication with our clients to ensure we provide what they need for their building occupants. We have an array of technology and protocols to deploy, and the best trained staff to deliver cleaning services, so our clients' needs will be met. Janitronics continues to embrace the science and follow the best practices as defined by the CDC and other relevant parties. We are here for you during these trying times, and we are ready to help you.

With the recent approval of a COVID-19 vaccine, we have reached an important stage in the fight against the virus. 

At Janitronics Building Services, we know our employees have many questions about vaccines, including when they will be eligible to receive a vaccine.


Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker recently announced the state’s approach to vaccine distribution, which prioritizes individuals and communities at highest risk. Vaccine distribution in Massachusetts will occur in a phased approach. We anticipate Janitronics employees will be able to participate in vaccination at phase two.
