COVID-19, Surface and Disinfection for Syringe Service Providers and Other Harm Reduction Providers

COVID-19 mainly passes from direct contact of person-to-person. The most common way that COVID-19 is spread is when someone who is infected with it sneezes or coughs and infected droplets come into contact with someone else.

Indirect contact, such as transmission from surfaces to people may
also transmit COVID-19 infection. We’re working under the principle
of “it’s better to be safe than sorry” here: The idea is that you put your hand down on a table that has the virus on it, then rub your eyes or nose, transferring the virus into your body. This is why washing your hands
is so important, but it is equally important to keep surfaces clean and disinfected regularly.
