Soap and water to clean an area is a good start, if you need a bleach solution, OHA reads: “Prepare a bleach solution by mixing: 5 tablespoons (1/3 cup) bleach per gallon of water; or 4 teaspoons bleach per quart of water. Remember to read instructions on containers—it takes time for all disinfectants/sanitizers to work. Might have to stay wet for longer than you are used to…..this will kill the virus, bacteria and germs. Make sure you wear gloves, have adequate ventilation and practice the “new normal”—do the cleaning often especially if someone in you household is sick.

Mask up, wash hands often, social distance, avoid large crowds and sick people and monitor your own health-all part of the “new normal” we now live in.
