The school year brings a lot spreading of germs as students are packed into classrooms, sharing supplies and using the same surfaces. As a result, it’s important to have a cleaning crew on hand to help stop germs in their tracks on a regular basis. Bringing in a janitorial staff every night after school can help disinfect the school’s surface levels, making it harder for students to pass germs to one another.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it’s important to stop germs in their tracks in an effort to keep up with assignments. Asking students who feel under the weather to stay home so they don’t infect other kids is the first step. The news provider reports that school age children typically have a high rate of flu.
In addition to having a cleaning crew on hand, CBS News reports that teachers should encourage students to wipe down surface areas whenever possible. Depending on the age, having cleanup time throughout the day rather than waiting until after the cleaning crews arrive at night can stop bacteria from spreading. Also encouraging both students and staff to wash their hands throughout the day can prevent bacteria from spreading.
