Healthy Homes Information for COVID-19

With concerns about COVID-19 (the novel coronavirus) many people are thinking about how to safely clean their homes.  Some of the cleaners we normally recommend will not kill the virus.  Some of the chemicals (like bleach) that will kill the virus can be dangerous if they are not used properly.  This page shares information about healthy housekeeping for people who are concerned about the COVID-19 virus. 

Information is changing very quickly.  Please check government websites regularly for updates
