Reopening: Create a CDC Compliant
Is your business getting ready to reopen? The CDC has shared new guidelines for workplaces, schools and other spaces preparing to open their doors to the public. We’ll help you create a compliant cleaning strategy by sharing an overview of these guidelines, tips on what to clean, ideas for additional reopening initiatives and resources for cleaning your specific facility type.
We understand that many businesses are excited to reunite with their teams and increase their ability to serve their customers and communities. However, we want to emphasize the importance of doing everything in your power to create a safe and healthy environment for staff and visitors in order to prevent the spread of disease.
As you coordinate your unique reopening initiatives, an easy way to check cleaning off the list is to get help planning and implementing a CDC compliant cleaning strategy.

CDC Reopening Guidelines
The CDC encourages continued disease prevention efforts, but also recommends taking a specific three-step reopening approach to reduce the risk of COVID-19 exposure.
- Develop a flexible, compliant cleaning plan. Determine what needs to be cleaned and disinfected and what resources and equipment is required to get the job done.
- Implement your plan safely and thoroughly. Clean visibly dirty surfaces, choose the proper cleaning products and follow safe product use instructions.
- Maintain and revise your plan. Continue regular cleaning and disinfection, practice healthy hygiene and observe social distancing at your facility.
What to Clean & Disinfect
Surfaces that aren’t frequently touched should be cleaned, but don’t necessarily need to be disinfected. If your facility has been unoccupied for a week or more, it will require routine cleaning to reopen
If you’re pursuing a reopen, the CDC also urges you to consider:
- Identifying opportunities for exposure at your facility
- Exploring flexible sick leave and related policies
- Establishing social distancing (desk partitions, remote work)
- Educating staff on disease prevention tactics
- Improving ventilation and providing hygiene resources
- Performing enhanced cleaning and disinfection
