Sanitization of Facilities Potentially Contaminated with SARS-CoV-2

Sanitization of Facilities Potentially Contaminated with SARS-CoV-2 is a webinar that will discuss different strategies available to decontaminate facilities that are potentially contaminated with severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the causative agent of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). During the current COVID-19 pandemic, unknowing COVID-19 positive persons may potentially contaminate different facilities including lab spaces and office spaces with SARS-CoV-2. This webinar will give an overview of methods that are available to sanitize facilities. Though this webinar will focus on reviewing methods for sanitizing facilities potentially contaminated with SARS-CoV-2, the information in this webinar will also be useful for sanitizing facilities that contaminated with other infectious agents.


Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Evaluate facility decontamination methods
  • Develop and utilize a general knowledge of mechanisms of disinfection, sterilization, and inactivation
  • Familiarize themselves with biosafety resources available for SARS-CoV-2


Biosafety Professionals, Facilities Personnel, Laboratorians, Clinical Staff
