Resource Roundup: School Reopening
With a new year in full swing, schools and universities all over the country are working to establish a new normal for maintaining school facilities. Information is changing daily, creating a logistical nightmare for administrators, teachers, parents, and school facility mangers.
For those who clean schools, the best way to keep up with the constant flow of information is to stay educated. While some advice is always relevant, such as remembering to hygienically clean prior to disinfection, other protocols are changing rapidly. Today’s cleaning dos may be tomorrow’s cleaning don’ts. At Kaivac, we strive to keep our cleaning community as informed as possible. We’ve rounded up these resources from trusted sources to assist you and your staff during this challenging time.
