DCARA has important information to share with the community. Watch our video.
How and what can we do to clean the virus off?
Do you know that virus last in air for 3 hours? That’s why it’s important for us to stay 6 feet away from others or stay at home. If you are in the same room with people, you can use this disinfectant spray. If somebody cough or sneeze on the cardboard box, virus will last up to 24 hours. I suggest to leave it outside over 24 hours. If you have to move it, open it. Move it somewhere safe or remove item(s) from the box. Discard the box and wash your hands after touching your item(s). Virus can survive on metal, plastic, doorknob, table, etc. up to 3 days (72 hours). Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces with this disinfecting wipe.
• Light switches
If you’ve run out of wipes, use any alcohol-based spray, make sure these products contain up to 60-70% alcohol. Clean the surfaces with a paper towel and discard immediately. You also can use reusable rag. Put it in the washer or laundry basket immediately after use. Make sure to wash these with warm/hot water and detergent.
