Camp Cleaning and Disinfecting Procedures for confirmed COVID-19

Extra cleaning and disinfecting procedures will begin 24hrs after the confirmed case. If waiting 24 hours is not possible, as long as possible will be waited.

  1. First clean visibly dirty surfaces then perform disinfection.
  2. Use disposable wipes/paper towels to clean surfaces if possible, rather than reusable cloth wipes, as the latter can re-contaminate surfaces. All cleaning and disinfecting materials (e.g., paper towels, cloth wipers, sponges, mop heads, etc.) should be disposed of in sealed bags or containers after use.
  3. Particular attention will be given to high touch areas, including, but not limited to, handrails, door handles, cabinet and drawer handles, shared sports equipment or craft tools.
  4. Clean a potential source area by progressing from the most distant point to the entrance to avoid re-contaminating surfaces that have been disinfected (i.e., clean your way out).

How to Wash Hands

  1. Wet your hands with clean, running water. Turn off the tap and apply soap.
  2. Lather your hands by running them together with the soap. Make sure to lather the back of your hands, between your fingers, and under your nails.
  3. Scrub your hands for at least 20 seconds (about the time it takes, to sing the “Happy Birthday” song twice.)
  4. Rinse your hands well under clean, running water.
  5. Dry your hands using a clean towel or an air dryer.

You may use paper towels to turn off the faucet and/or open the door to the bathroom.

How to Use Alcohol-Based Hand Sanitizer

Hand sanitizers should contain greater than 60% ethanol or greater than 70% isopropanol. Hand sanitizers are not a substitute for handwashing for there is easy access to a sink.

  1. Apply the product to the palm of one’s hand. Rub hands vigorously.
