Surface Sampling for SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)

Recently published studies suggest that SARS-CoV-2 (which causes COVID-19) may remain viable on different surfaces for up to 72 hours. This emphasizes the need for companies to ramp up their cleaning and disinfecting protocol to minimize the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and to reduce the risk of a COVID-19 outbreak at their facility. Cleaning and disinfecting are also extremely important if someone in the workplace has been diagnosed as a carrier of the SARS‑CoV‑2 virus.

How confident are you that your cleaning and disinfecting process is adequate? Can you document that your protocol is sufficient? Will your workforce be comfortable coming back into the workplace if a fellow worker has been diagnosed with COVID-19?

Technology for testing the presence of a virus on surfaces is readily available. Circle Safety can conduct periodic, random, or incident-specific surface swab testing to test for the presence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus so you can document the effectiveness of your sanitation procedures via a third party.
