Contaminated Surfaces Present a Potential Problem for Atlantic City Businesses
Preventative Cleaning and Disinfection in Atlantic City.
Recently, Atlantic City and the world have been rocked by a new, rapidly spreading coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that this pandemic will be slowed by social distancing and by effectively disinfecting touch points and surfaces.
In just under three months, the virus has spread from Wuhan, China to most countries of the world. Atlantic City is particularly vulnerable to the virus because of its proximity to New York City, the epicenter of the U.S. outbreak. While this disease’s effects are frightening enough, the illness is made even more chilling by the rapidity in which it has spread and the fact that there is no vaccine available to prevent it.
Experts at the CDC believe that indirect transmission of the virus from contaminated surfaces is a contributing factor. Their studies have suggested that, unlike common flu viruses that can survive outside the body for one-to-three days, the new virus could live up to nine days on surfaces. It is for this reason that having potentially infected areas professionally cleaned and sanitized could significantly slow the spread of this disease.
