Kids are Back to School… and so is the flu, strep, and a whole slew of illnesses.
There is no doubt the incidence of illnesses greatly increases once children go back to school. It is a constant cycle that rebounds from children, to teachers, to parents, and into the general public. Aside from vaccinations, washing hands, and minimizing exposure to sick people, there is one measure you can take to prevent the spread of illnesses: disinfect all touch surfaces within any given facility.
The chart below demonstrates how much bacteria can be on certain surfaces when they are not disinfected on a regular basis. Disinfecting a whole school every single day can be a daunting task, no matter what size of school your children attend. It is vital we all do our part to ensure our school is taking the proper measures to prevent the spread of viruses and bacteria.
Whether you are a parent, teacher, or a school administrator, we highly recommend you verify what kind of disinfecting protocols are in place at your school. Is the custodial team or custodial service provider using the right disinfectants? Are they following the right procedures to use them effectively? Are the measures in place working? These are just some questions you need to ask.
