Increased Custodial Efforts at Seattle Parks and Recreation Facilities During Cold/Flu Season
February 20, 2020
As a best practice to prevent the spread of viruses during this
cold and flu season, and in response to general concerns over Coronavirus
Disease 2019 (COVID-19), Seattle Parks and Recreation (SPR) is increasing
custodial cleaning efforts at our facilities, including community centers and
SPR is implementing these measures to support basic good cleaning
and hygiene care at our high-traffic public facilities, and not in response to a specific exposure
In addition to our already-established custodial routines, we will
be implementing the following measures:
SPR will install Hand Sanitizing stations in lobby areas at our public facilities
SPR will increase the number of times that the following high-traffic areas are sanitized, with custodians sanitizing these areas three times during their shift:
Bathroom countertops, stall handles, and flushing devices
Entry/exit door handles and surrounding areas
Lobby desk tops
Please see the following information from Public
Health–Seattle & King County about protective measures you can
take to prevent getting COVID-19 or the flu and the common cold:
If you are traveling overseas (to China but also to other places) follow the CDC’s guidance: wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel.
Right now, the COVID-19 has not been spreading widely in the United States, so there are no additional precautions recommended for the general public.
Steps you can take to prevent the spread of flu and of the common cold will also help prevent coronavirus:
-wash hands often with soap and water. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
-avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
-avoid contact with people who are sick
-stay home while you are sick and avoid close contact with others
-cover your mouth/nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing
