CLEANING & DISINFECTION GUIDELINES FOR RESTAURANTS AND
OTHER BUILDINGS AFTER KNOWN POSITIVE COVID CASES WITHIN THE
PREMISES
ENHANCED CLEANING & DISINFECTION
Ensure all disinfectants used are approved by Health Canada to be effective against COVID-19.
A link to Health Canada approved disinfectants for COVID-19 can be found at:
https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/drugs-health-products/disinfectants/covid-
19/list.html
Cleaning and disinfecting your building or facility if someone is sick
 Close off areas used by the person who is sick. Companies do not necessarily need to close
operations, if they can close off affected areas.
 Open outside doors and windows to increase air circulation in the area. It is highly
recommended, when possible, to have doors and windows that are equipped with screens
to limit the chance of pests entering.
 Clean and disinfect all areas used by the person who is sick, such as offices, bathrooms,
common areas, shared electronic equipment like tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote
controls, and ATM machines.
 Use a Health Canada approved disinfectant that is effective in killing COVID-19 virus and
follow manufacturer’s instructions on concentration and contact time required.
 Vacuum the space if needed. Use a vacuum equipped with high-efficiency particulate air
(HEPA) filter, if available.
 Temporarily turn off in-room, window-mounted, or on-wall recirculation HVAC to avoid
contamination of the HVAC units.
 Do NOT deactivate central HVAC systems. These systems tend to provide better filtration
capabilities and introduce outdoor air into the areas that they serve.
 Once the area has been disinfected, it can be opened for use.
 Continue routine cleaning and disinfection. This includes everyday practices that businesses
and communities normally use to maintain a healthy environment.
Note: If disinfectants are to be applied, manual surface cleaning with detergent and water using applied friction
(e.g. brushing, scrubbing) must be performed first to ensure physical removal of organic materials, followed by use
of a cloth or wipe which is soaked in the disinfectant
The application of disinfectants to environmental surfaces via spraying or fogging (also known as fumigation or
misting) in indoor spaces is not recommended as a stand alone method. If fogging does take place a physical
removal of organic material must be completed prior to using a Health Canada approved disinfectant in the
fogging regimen. Workers should follow safe work procedures and established personal protective equipment
requirements.
Spraying environmental surfaces in both health care and non-healthcare settings (e.g. patient households) with
disinfectants will not be effective and may pose harm to individuals
For electronics, such as tablets, touch screens, keyboards, remote controls, and ATM machines
consider putting a wipeable cover on electronics. Follow manufacturer’s instruction for
cleaning and disinfecting. If no guidance, use alcohol-based wipes or sprays containing at least
70% alcohol. Dry surface thoroughly.
For soft surfaces such as carpeted floor, rugs, and drapes
 Clean the surface using soap and water or with cleaners appropriate for use on these
surfaces.
 Launder items (if possible) according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use the
warmest appropriate water setting and dry items completely.
 Disinfect with a Health Canada approved disinfectant. The disinfectant must be
approved by Health Canada for use against COVID-19.
 Vacuum as usual.
Remember to continue to clean and disinfect these areas at regularly scheduled intervals
daily.
For Food Handling Establishments:
It is recommended that a full disinfection be completed in the facility (not only the kitchen)
using:
 diluted household bleach i.e. 20 ml (4 teaspoons) bleach for every litre of water
 alcohol solutions with at least 60 per cent alcohol or
 Health Canada approved disinfectants approved for Covid-19. Ensure contact
times are achieved (refer to manufacturer’s label).
Ensure all staff practice frequent hand washing techniques, and be sure to have the hand wash
sinks stocked with soap and paper towels at all times.
