QUICK REFERENCE FOR ALL SECTORS - Sanitary Environment

In general, coronaviruses do not survive long on objects and surfaces. They will last a few hours on inert objects with dry surfaces and a few days on inert objects with moist surfaces. To limit the risk of contact with contaminated surfaces, in addition to the usual cleaning of the workplaces, more frequent cleaning of surfaces in contact with the hands is recommended (e.g. stairway railings, doorknobs, elevator buttons).
