Cleaning, Sanitizing, and Targeted Disinfecting – Athletics Department

This brochure outlines the key components of a comprehensive cleaning program for the athletics department of your school. It describes the difference between cleaning, sanitizing and disinfecting, and provides tips and best practices for athletic directors, physical educators, and coaches to prevent the spread of communicable disease.

School athletic facilities pose a special risk for spreading infectious diseases such as Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and others because of the potential for skin-to-skin and surface-to-skin contact among students and athletes. Keeping these facilities clean can help prevent germs and the spread of disease.
