Clorox and Cleveland Clinic Release Guide to Help People Stay Safer at Home During COVID-19

The Clorox Company and Cleveland Clinic have released a second guide following the announcement of their partnership in July to support public health as society continues to face COVID-19.

“Safer at Home During the Coronavirus Pandemic” shares practices for households that can help people protect themselves, their loved ones and their communities from further spread of COVID-19. The free online guide incorporates general prevention information, resources on cleaning and disinfecting a home, tips on communicating with loved ones about the new realities and emotional challenges posed by the pandemic, and guidance on caring for family members who are sick with coronavirus. Many of the same steps can keep families healthy during the upcoming cold and flu season as well.

“As we continue to contend with the challenges from COVID-19, people are looking for guidance that will give them a sense of confidence and comfort that they’re taking the right steps to help them keep their families safe,” said Clorox Chair and CEO Benno Dorer. “Bringing together the knowledge and expertise we’ve each developed over the course of 100 years — for Clorox in serving the cleaning and disinfecting needs of households and for Cleveland Clinic in serving patient needs — is important. Our hope is that the guide will contribute to the collective action necessary to beat the pandemic.”

Added Cleveland Clinic Chief Clinical Transformation Officer James Merlino, M.D., “As we focus on protecting ourselves from COVID-19, it’s important we take precautions everywhere we go, including in our homes. This new guide offers advice that can prevent the spread of COVID-19, and addresses emotional well-being and ways to maintain social connections with friends and family while we are physically distant. Our organizations are committed to helping the community stay safe as we all continue to navigate a new normal during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.”

The first guide released in July as part of the Clorox-Cleveland Clinic partnership, “Six Building Blocks of a Robust Cleaning and Disinfection Program,” was focused on helping employers with training, effective product selection, and the development of robust cleaning and disinfection processes to create and maintain safer environments. The organizations are also involved in a partnership with United Airlines, the United CleanPlus program, to inform and guide new cleaning and safety protocols.

Cleveland Clinic offers resources and advisory support to help organizations safely resume operations during COVID-19. These resources include an employer website, COVID-19: Creating a Safe Workplace, which features a series of return to work guides developed for various industries. Cleveland Clinic also hosts a webinar series on topics ranging from infection prevention to employee resiliency.
