What You Can Do
In order to reduce the chance of infection or transmission of coronavirus, all surfaces and articles in the home and office should be cleaned and disinfected every day. Ozonated water is the best-known green sanitizer. Use an ozone sanitizer spray, wait for 30 seconds and wipe. After you visit the drugstore or supermarket, or bring in takeout food or packages, wash your hands for at least 20 seconds with soap and warm water. Then sanitize your hand with ozonated water.
