In general, only essential personnel should enter the room of patients with COVID-19.

Healthcare facilities should consider assigning daily cleaning and disinfection of high-touch surfaces to nursing personnel who will already be in the room providing care to the patient.

If this responsibility is assigned to EVS personnel, they should wear all recommended PPE when in the room.

PPE should be removed upon leaving the room, immediately followed by performance of hand hygiene.

After discharge, terminal cleaning may be performed by EVS personnel.

They should delay entry into the room until a sufficient time has elapsed for enough air changes to remove potentially infectious particles.

We do not yet know how long SARS-CoV-2 remains infectious in the air.

Regardless, EVS personnel should refrain from entering the vacated room until sufficient time has elapsed for enough air changes to remove potentially infectious particles (more information on clearance rates under differing ventilation conditions is available).

After this time has elapsed, EVS personnel may enter the room and should wear a gown and gloves when performing terminal cleaning.
