The CDC recently clarified that COVID-19 transmission through surfaces is not as common as feared. Cleaning or disinfecting frequently-touched objects can curb the spread of contaminated droplets.
Some of the most important surfaces to clean include:
We spend a lot of time on our electronics. Disinfect your phone, computer keyboard, mouse and any other electronics used daily.
If other people are touching the same doorknob, clean and disinfect it.
- High touch surfaces in your car
If you share a car with other people, disinfect surfaces you or your passengers touch. This would include door handles, steering wheel, seat belts or radio controls.
- Your hands
Continue to wash your hands to help slow the spread of coronavirus.
The best way to reduce your exposure to COVID-19 is to continue following all CDC guidelines.
