CIRI COVID-19 Coronavirus Guidance

Looking for science-based best practices around cleaning and decontamination of hard surfaces in non-healthcare environments from SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19)?


“Guidance for Decontamination of the Built Environment: Cleaning, Disinfection, Worker Protection, and Post Cleaning and Remediation Assessment,” provides an overview of what’s known about COVID-19, including its biology, epidemiology, pathology and current modes of transmission. Using this framework, the CIRI Science Advisory Committee uses peer-reviewed research to outline recommendations around health-based cleaning and disinfection practices.


Recommendations focus on the following areas:


  • Worker Protection
  • Decontamination
  • Cleaning
  • Disinfection
  • Post-Cleaning Assessments and Measurement
