Whether you work in a small office with just a handful of coworkers or you have an open-floor office space with hundreds of employees, it’s hard to ignore the elephant in the room — the 2019 Novel Coronavirus. If you are employed by a company where people work close together indoors, many of your coworkers may be uneasy about the coronavirus outbreak, which seems to be getting worse each day. In the infographic below, we’ll review three pieces of advice to help you maintain a sanitary workspace for yourself and your employees during the Coronavirus panic, and then continue reading below for more information on the importance of these tips.

3 Tips for Keeping Your Office Sanitary During the Coronavirus Outbreak

Clean Your Mouse & Keyboard Frequently

Whenever an infectious disease like Swine Flu, SARS, or Coronavirus starts spreading to so many people that it dominates almost all of the international news headlines, the public is constantly reminded to wash their hands more frequently. But what about the things you touch in your office throughout the day? If you work at a computer for most of the day, just think about how many times you get up, touch things throughout the office, interact with coworkers, and return to use your computer. That’s why washing your hands is only half of the battle when it comes to keeping your workspace clean. But don’t stop at your mouse and keyboard —  you should sanitize everything on your desk.

Sanitize Any Items On Your Desk That You Touch Regularly

We’re talking about pens, pencils, staplers, phones, and any little knick-knacks you have on your desk. You can sanitize these items with a disinfectant spray, or wipe them down with some mild disinfectant wipes — just make sure you get everything that’s touched by you or your coworkers on a somewhat regular basis. There’s no harm in taking an overkill approach if you want to be sure that your workspace is completely sanitary in the midst of this coronavirus outbreak. If you want to be 100 percent positive that your entire office is free of disease-causing germs, you should consider getting a deep clean from a professional cleaning service. 

Hire a Professional Cleaning Service

When taking precautionary measures to avoid the spread of disease in your office, you can only do so much regarding your immediate workspace — but what about the rest of the office? You can’t force everyone else to keep the space as clean as you would like it to be during these trying times, and there are many areas throughout an office that no one person feels accountable for. If you want a deep and thorough cleaning of your entire office, your best course of action is to hire a professional cleaning service. Fortunately, the office-cleaning pros at Cornerstone Services have the tools and experience needed to completely eradicate disease-causing germs in your office.
