As school reopen, with hybrid programs and in-person learning, among the tops goals for communities and families is keeping kids safe from the spread of COVID-19 and providing a productive and safe learning environment. Schools provide academics and much more for their students including aiding in the development of emotional and social skills, delivering support services, and even promising healthy meals. There are a number of ways schools can continue in-person learning safely, including utilizing Signature Sanitize by Signature Maids. Here the team at Signature Maids share some helpful tips as well as the benefits of their custom Signature Sanitize services.
Taking the Steps to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
Administrators, Teachers, and Students should:
- Maintain Physical Distancing – In most cases, this means maintaining a physical distance of six feet apart, though recent research has shown similar benefits when desks are placed three feet apart and students and teachers wear face coverings. Of course, in both scenarios, those with symptoms of illness should remain at safely at home until the symptoms pass. In addition, limited in-person meetings and gatherings should remain at a minimum and always include face coverings and physical distancing of six feet.
- Hygiene and Face Coverings – Everyone over the age of two should wear face covering over their mouth and nose to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Face covering breaks can even be provided during the school day with proper physical distancing in place. Frequent hand washing with soap and water is equally important in preventing the spread.
- Logistics Changes – Student interaction outside the classroom should be limited and include having teachers move from classroom to classroom, rather than students changing classes. In addition, having students in small groups outside or at their desks and leaving doors open can also help prevent the spread.
- Outside the Classroom – Hallways and stairways should be clearly marked for “one-way traffic” to help maintain physical distancing. Lockers should be eliminated or assigned by classroom groups. For bus riders’ seats should be assigned and riders as well as drivers should wear face coverings.
Cleaning, Disinfecting, and Sanitizing
Schools should follow the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) guidelines for cleaning, disinfecting, and sanitizing, classrooms, hallways, bathrooms, and other common areas, as well as buses and playground equipment. Signature Maids’ custom sanitization and disinfection service, Signature Sanitize, can help schools return to normal and keep students, teachers, administrators, and their families safe.
The Signature Sanitize process features the latest in touchless technology and the application of an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved disinfecting solution known as Vital Oxide. Applied by trained technicians using electrostatic atomizers the process disinfects and sanitizes spaces completely from high touch points to hard to reach spots. Vital Oxide has been proven to eliminate 99.999 percent of viruses and bacteria including COVID-19, Norovirus, Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA), Legionella, Swine Flu (H1N1), Pneumophila, as well as allergens, mold, mildew, and more. The EPA-approved disinfectant is ionized and non-residual, which means it requires no rinsing and leaves no residue. The entire process is touchless, reducing the risk of cross-contamination which can occur with other methods. The process can be used in classrooms, common areas, restrooms, and more as well as school buses and other school transportation. Signature Sanitize is safe on every surface from marble to carpeting and all surfaces in between. It also provides an effective antimicrobial for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems and air ducts, eliminating bacteria, fungi, and microbial contaminants from HVAC and air ducts to ensure the best air quality for your students and teachers. Plus, it also successfully disinfects – killing bacteria on soft surfaces like window treatments, upholstered surfaces, and vehicles interiors.
