Chairs, tables, other furniture Before and after every interviewee
Bathroom surfacesEvery 4 hours

  • Hand Washing /Sanitizer Stations

We all have to do our part to prevent the spread of illness.  We know that practicing good hygiene is an essential part of preventing the spread of COVID-19.  To protect yourself and others from getting sick, take the following precautions:

  • wash your hands often (in addition to routine times such as after using the washroom, before eating, when handling food for the public),
  • cough/sneeze into your elbow or tissue and throw away,
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with your hands,
  • use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not readily available.
