The spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to affect communities throughout the United States and the world. Based on what we currently know about the virus, it is believed to be steadfast in fabric – meaning it may stick around on linens and clothing. That’s why we’ve developed a series of tips to ensure you’re equipped with the knowledge to defend yourself against this outbreak. Below, you’ll find some of WASH’s virus-fighting best practice tips for the laundry room as well as the CDC’s guidelines for handling and cleaning laundry that has come into contact with those infected by COVID-19. Remember to handle all infected laundry with care!
You can further protect yourself by regularly sanitizing with disinfectant spray or wipes according to the label’s instructions. Be sure to wear gloves any time you are handling infected material or cleaning chemicals. Remember to thoroughly wash or sanitize your hands any time you contact with “high touch” surfaces and to avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
Wishing you and your loved ones health and safety.
