Cleaning and disinfecting a business after a COVID-19 case

This is a recently updated DHHS document which provides advice on cleaning and disinfecting for facilities or workplaces after an employee, resident or visitor has been diagnosed with COVID-19. While this advice is primarily for facilities and workplaces, the same principles apply for schools, childcare centres, accommodation facilities, factories and private homes.
 
A resource within the document of particular use is a demonstration video for the use of PPE if undertaking a COVID-19 deep clean. Although developed for use in education settings, the same principles would apply for any setting where PPE is needed.

Preventing infection in the workplace provides some further information on what to expect and what to implement if a case of COVID-19 is confirmed in your workplace.

South West Healthcare have created this video which provides advice on how to clean and disinfect non-healthcare premises (such as homes, motels and shops) to reduce COVID-19 transmission.
