How EVS Staff Are Battling the Coronavirus in Health Care and Hospitality Settings

Read the fourth part of a five-part series highlighting the role of the cleaning industry during a pandemic

March 30, 2020

Health care and long-term care facilities are especially in need of protection from the coronavirus. The health of individuals in these facilities—many with underlying health conditions who are at high-risk of infections—depends on the professionals who clean and disinfect these buildings.

Medical facilities are fully staffed and 100% operational as they deal with an increased demand on their services. In addition to dealing with their regular work load, environmental services (EVS) workers are dealing with additional stresses such as a lack of personal protective equipment, the theft of hand sanitizer and other cleaning/hygiene supplies from their facilities, and the worries of exposing themselves to the coronavirus while other workers stay at home.

Learn how they are coping with these challenges in the fourth part of a five-part series: An Industry Unites: A Focus on Facilities Spotlights True Professionalism.

Then read previous articles on BSCs, manufacturers, and distributors which  investigate what the cleaning industry is doing in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
