If you or your business is impacted by the Corona Virus (COVD-19) or simply wish to take precautions regarding employee health, our team is here to help.
The Corona Virus (COVID-19) is considered a novel virus. The virus is highly infectious and can rapidly infect a population within a short amount of time. With this being said, there is much to learn in regards to its pathogenesis. Current data suggests transmission occurs via respiratory droplets. Currently, evidence published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests the virus may remain viable for hours to days on surfaces made from a variety of materials. Cleaning of these materials, followed by disinfection, is considered a best practice for prevention of COVID-19.
When cleaning and disinfecting, proper precautions must be taken to avoid exposure. MitiServe is highly experienced with these types of cases. Our team regularly takes proper measures to ensure the safety of our employees and to reduce cross contamination. According to the CDC, employers/employees participating in the cleanup of COVID-19 must be trained on the cleanup of bloodborne pathogens and proper use (donning/doffing) of PPE. Each of our environmental emergency employees are highly trained in the proper use of personal protective equipment (including full face respirators) and infection control. In addition, three members of our management team have previous healthcare experience in infection control in healthcare settings.
