Germs can be spread when a person touches respiratory droplets from another person on a surface like a desk and then touches their own eyes, mouth or nose before washing their hands."

CSPA recommends consumers take the following precautions to help keep themselves healthy:

  • Use disinfectants or sanitizers properly by following label directions to kill germs on commonly touched surfaces such as telephones and keyboards, and doorknobs and countertops.
