Lausanne Collegiate School Cleaning and Disinfecting Protocols

Considering the COVID-19 Pandemic, please note the following revised cleaning and sanitizing efforts that Lausanne implements.

Products and Materials Used
Processes
  • Cleaning removes germs, dirt, and impurities from surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily kill germs, but by removing them, it lowers their numbers and the risk of spreading infection.
  • Sanitizing lowers the number of germs on surfaces or objects to a safe level, as judged by public health standards or requirements. This process works by either cleaning or killing most germs on surfaces or objects to lower the risk of spreading. This is typically used on food contact surfaces.
  • Disinfecting kills germs on surfaces or objects. Disinfecting works by using products to kill germs on surfaces or objects. This process does not necessarily clean dirty surfaces or remove germs, but by killing germs on a surface after cleaning, it can further lower the risk of spreading infection.
  • Electrostatic spraying is implemented in some areas giving 100% coverage and eliminating viruses on contact. Electrooptic spraying is then sealed with a product called Endure which provides longer protection against bacteria by applying a protective coating to control and inhibit bacteria and viruses that meet a coated surface.
  • TouchPoints: Hot spots such as door handles, faucet handles, light switches, thermostats, timeclock, copier, etc. are disinfected nightly, and many high use areas are disinfected every 30 minutes.
  • Outdoor areas like the playgrounds, benches, etc. are cleaned routinely but do not require disinfection
Training
  • All staff (day and night) has been re-trained on the use of the chemicals and proper cleaning and sanitizing protocols
  • Required to wash hands after sneezing, coughing, blowing nose, use of bathroom, eating or preparing food, etc.
