Office Sanitizing & Disinfecting Toronto Business Guidance!

COVID-19 is an infection caused by a novel coronavirus that can result in acute respiratory illness. In general, these viruses are spread when a sick person coughs or sneezes. It may also be possible for a person to get COVID-19 by touching contaminated surfaces and then touching their own mouth, nose, or their eyes. The majority of people with COVID-19 develop a mild illness, which may include fever, cough, or shortness of breath. For more general information about COVID-19, visit

The following are recommendations to help reduce the risk of exposure to acute respiratory illness, including COVID-19 in buildings such as hotels, condominiums, apartment buildings, and other similar vertical living spaces. This document may be updated as the situation is rapidly changing, and new information becomes available. Refer to Toronto Public Health's website for the latest updates.

COVID-19 is
circulating in the community in Toronto. It is recommended that all
non-essential common areas, including gyms, libraries, party rooms,
playgrounds, pools, hot tubs, and spas, be closed at this time. Infection
prevention and control advice to help further reduce the risk of respiratory
infection, including COVID-19, is provided below.

Virus Infection Prevention Strategies

Building operators should encourage staff to do the following to prevent infection:

- Stay home if sick. Employees or contract workers who have symptoms of acute respiratory illness are recommended to not come to work and seek appropriate medical attention.
- Ensure that your sick leave policies are flexible. For example, relax requirements for sick notes, and allow staff to stay home to care for sick family members.

Staff should practice effective hand hygiene:

- Wash their hands often with soap and water for at least 15 seconds – an alcohol-based hand sanitizer can be used if soap and water are not available.
- Avoid touching their faces, especially with unwashed hands.
- Cover their coughs and sneezes with a tissue or sleeve, not their hands.

Building operators and staff should follow these guidelines when cleaning and disinfecting the building environment:

- Commonly used cleaners and disinfectants are effective against COVID-19.

In addition to the daily routine cleaning, surfaces that have frequent contact with hands should be cleaned and disinfected twice per day and when visibly dirty.
