Disinfecting Procedures

High-touch surfaces should be disinfected regularly, and individuals assigned to clean and disinfect equipment and high touch surfaces must only use soap and water and household disinfectants, unless they have been trained to use commercial products.

  • Ensure that those who have been assigned to clean/disinfect each piece of equipment have been made aware of the manufacturer’s recommendations including any required personal protective equipment that must be worn (eye protection, disposable gloves and or face mask/covering). It may be helpful to post/mount the cleaning/disinfecting instructions next to where the items are stored or cleaned/disinfected.
    ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ — In general, items should be cleaned with soap and water or disinfected using an EPA disinfectant after each cabin/cohort use per the manufacturer’s guidance.
    ​ ​ ​ ​ ​ — Kid and volunteer involvement in cleaning and disinfecting items is strictly limited to using soap and water and household disinfectants.
  • If possible, individuals should be given their own sport/activity related equipment (ball, harness, paddle, etc.) and these individuals should clean or disinfect their assigned items after individual use. ​
