Pennsylvania is reopening following the Coronavirus Shutdown in phases. As counties report a decline in covid-19 cases, they will slowly transition from red (the most restrictive phase) to yellow (a mid-range phase) to green (the last phase of restrictions). For more on Pennsylvania Phases, what they mean, and where we are now, please check out our informative Coronavirus Reopening Phases Infographic!
What is Coronavirus Disinfection?
Recently we have been contacted by a number of commercial clients inquiring about Infectious Disease Disinfection services to address Coronavirus concerns. In an effort to provide detailed answers to those that might have questions about this process, we compiled this page.
We completely understand the concerns that the recent Covid-19 / Coronavirus outbreak has caused and we applaud the attention local businesses have placed in reducing opportunities for exposure and disinfecting common areas. These steps could dramatically reduce potential exposure to staff and customers.
During the disinfection process, our staff will evaluate common areas and surfaces that would be a potential concern. Lobbys, waiting areas, work surfaces, phones, and chairs are some of the common surfaces and content items that will be disinfected as part of the process.
Please note that standard disinfection pricing applies, there is NO upcharge to take advantage of the current situation. We only make this service available for those that have a need for it.
What is Coronavirus?
Coronavirus is a large family of viruses that is not new. The reason Coronavirus is in the news so much currently is because a new strain, Covid-19, was recently discovered and quickly spread around the globe. This new strain appears to be more easily transmitted and more severe than other strains of Coronavirus.
As with any new diseases, there is a lot we don’t know and that creates a lot of concern. What we do know about Coronavirus Disease 2019 is that, at least as of now, the mortality rate is much higher than other strains of Coronavirus and other diseases such as the flu. This is concerning because, while the flue infects far more people annually than Covid-19 has to date, the mortality rate is much lower and the recovery rate is much higher.
As pharmaceutical companies around the world work to develop treatments and vaccines, it’s important for us to do everything we can to prevent the spread of the disease and to limit potential exposure. Here are some tips to avoid Coronavirus.
How is Coronavirus Transmitted?
Coronavirus is spread just like the flu or a cold. Common methods of transmission include:
• Through the air by coughing or sneezing.
• Through close personal contact such as touching or shaking hands.
• By touching an object or surface with the virus on it.
• Through exposure to bodily fluids.
What are the symptoms of Coronavirus?
Coronavirus Disease 2019 is a respiratory illness that can be extremely severe in some cases. The symptoms of Coronavirus are similar to the flu and include fever, cough, and shortness of breath.
Due to the severity of the respiratory issues caused by this new strain of Coronavirus, the CDC recommends seeking medical treatment immediately if you develop difficulty breathing, shortness of breath, persistent pain or pressure in your chest, confusion or inability to wake up, or bluish lips or face.
*If you feel that you have been exposed to Coronavirus and develop symptoms, it’s important to contact your healthcare provider immediately for guidance and medical advice.
