Prevention measures, cleaning surfaces, disinfectants

Expand all questions

The Health Board recommends disinfecting the door handles, handrails, elevator buttons etc. of apartment buildings regularly. Viruses are destroyed by a disinfectant that contains more than 70% ethanol.

Hallways have to be cleaned with water and moisture-absorbent cloth because cleaning dust with a dry brush will not get rid of the virus. When cleaning, it is important to use disposable gloves and easy-to-clean working clothes and footwear in order to protect yourself from chemical cleaning agents and the contamination on surfaces.

If possible, the apartment associations could provide hand-sanitizers near entrances and lifts. You should, however, definitely remember to wash your hands thoroughly after coming home. You can find more recommendations from the guidelines of the Health Board (in Estonian).
