Reminder! COVID Lab Cleaning Procedures Remain in Effect

April 26, 2021

Cleaning ProceduresOur colleagues in the Environment, Health and Safety (EHS) department want to remind the research community that cleaning procedures implemented in response to COVID-19 continue to be in place. Those procedures include:

  • Frequently touched surfaces and equipment should be cleaned and disinfected at the beginning of a shift and again before leaving the laboratory when work is completed for the day.
  • Shared-use equipment and tools should be cleaned before and after each use by a different person.
  • A daily lab cleaning log should be maintained for shared spaces (but are not necessary for other areas within the laboratory), and accessible to EHS staff for review.
