QOLHS adheres to all recommendations by the CDC for cleaning and disinfecting public areas. These sanitation protocols also cover any areas with an increased probability of germs being exchanged or left on surfaces such as door handles, handrails, elevator buttons, counter tops, tables, desks, light switches, etc. As a standard practice, QOLHS and contracted staff members are also trained on bloodborne pathogen protocols.
The CDC recommends specific actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases and QOLHS encourages everyone to follow their guidance:
• Avoid close contact with people who are sick
• Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth
• Stay home when sick
• Cover cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw tissue in the trash
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
