Disinfecting COVID Exposed Areas

  • CDC recommends cleaning and disinfecting the school building thoroughly by:

    1. Closing off areas used by the person with COVID-19 for a significant amount of time
    2. Waiting as long as practical before beginning cleaning and disinfection to minimize potential for exposure 
      1. Open outside doors and windows if possible to increase circulation in the area
      2. If possible, wait up to 24 hours before beginning cleaning and disinfection
    3. Cleaning and disinfecting all areas used by the person with covid-19, focusing especially on frequently touched surfaces

    MES Administrators will work with APS and local health officials to determine if temporarily closing an area of the school is necessary.
