“The auto glass industry has tried to combat the spread of COVID-19 by following guidelines from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as well as local and state government officials. Both Tesla and State Farm have announced having employees test positive for COVID-19. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests several ways to sanitize the workplace after discovering employees with the virus.
According to the CDC’s published information, transmission of the virus from surfaces to humans hasn’t been documented, but some experts suggest that those cases could be too difficult to track. When it comes to cleaning and sanitizing potentially infected areas, CDC officials say to include not only individual workspaces, but also any areas that infected employees might have visited while on the premises. It is also important to note that neither cleaning nor disinfecting alone is considered sufficient; it takes both to effectively eliminate the virus. Cleaning does nothing to kill germs, guidelines point out, but does help to decrease their number. Conversely, disinfecting doesn’t remove germs, but kills those remaining on surfaces.”
