How to keep the Coronavirus out of your kitchen

With the reality of the coronavirus outbreak, workers need to be mindful of the risks and take every precaution to reduce transmission to coworkers and customers. A set of guidelines for keeping the coronavirus out of kitchens and restaurants have been provided by Diversey.

Stay home when you are sick, and when if you have to sneeze or cough, do so into a tissue or an elbow.

The guidelines make it clear that extra care must be taken with regards to hand hygiene.

Clean hands when:

- Your hands are dirty

- You have just used the toilet

- Are about to prepare food

- Have just completed a daily task

- Handled cash

- Entered the kitchen from outside or another part of the building

- Sneezed in your hands

Clean hands thoroughly with soap and water, lathering with soap for 20 seconds.

Contaminated surfaces are another major source of transmissions. To prevent contamination, commonly touched surfaces need to be disinfected regularly:

- Taps

- Door handles

- Switches

- Food contact surfaces

- Toilet flush handles

- Table tops

- Kitchen Utensils
