Cleaning Procedures

Staff are conducting sanitizing of high-volume areas throughout the venue. Hand cleaning of all horizontal and frequently contacted surfaces such as door handles, elevator controls, light switches, tables, seating, handrails, restroom fixtures, production equipment and more take place frequently. An aerosolized disinfection solution is applied to frequently touched surfaces and/or an electrostatic disinfection spray is applied on areas such as tables, chairs and carpet in frequently traveled areas.

Carpets are cleaned in all entryways on a regular basis and in high use areas. We apply an EPA-registered, healthcare-grade disinfectant during this step of the process. Large open areas are being treated with an aerosolized EPA-registered, healthcare-grade disinfectant into the atmosphere of the area and on horizontal surfaces.

HVAC air filtration system upgrades include installation of bipolar ionization equipment as well as enhanced filters with optimal MERV ratings to provide maximum air purification.
