• Healthy Hygiene and Cleaning Practices

     

    HEALTHY HYGIENE

    All MUSD schools and campuses teach and reinforce healthy hygiene practices including hand washing, avoiding touching one’s face, and covering one’s mouth when sneezing or coughing.

    Hand washing is promoted throughout the day, especially before and after eating, after using the restroom, and after handling garbage.

    MUSD and individual school sites ensure that campuses have adequate supplies readily available including face coverings, soap, tissues, no-touch trash cans, and hand sanitizers with at least 60% ethyl alcohol.

     

    CLEANING AND DISINFECTION

    When we will clean:

    In accordance with CDC’s guidance for Cleaning and Disinfecting Facilities for COVID-19, classrooms and office spaces are cleaned once a day to reduce the risk of infection.

    Cleaning simply requires soap or detergent to remove contaminants on surfaces and is generally only needed once per day when no people with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 have been in a space.

    When we will disinfect:

    Disinfection is used to kill any remaining germs on surfaces after cleaning, which further reduces any risk of spreading infection.

    If there is a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 within a school facility within the previous 24 hours, all areas the student or staff member frequented will be both cleaned and disinfected for additional safety.
