Disinfecting Homes with Cases of COVID-19
If you or someone in your household is positive for COVID-19, the CDC guidelines are a bit different. Those frequently touched surfaces in the common areas of your house need to be disinfected daily. Surfaces in the sick person’s room/bathroom can be disinfected on an as-needed basis to lower your contact with them.
The bleach solution mentioned previously needs to sit on hard, non-porous surfaces for a minimum of one minute to kill the virus. Use gloves while cleaning, and make sure the room is well-ventilated.
