Cleaning and disinfecting the surfaces in which you come in contact with regularly is a best practice for preventing the spread of COVID-19 – this includes your fleet vehicle.
- Clean and disinfect: Wear disposable gloves when cleaning and disinfecting, and discard after use. Wipe surfaces with a soap and water solution or use vehicle-specific cleaning solutions. Do not use bleach- or alcohol-based cleansers on leather and avoid use of liquid or water on or near electronics
- Focus on high-touch surfaces: Exterior and interior door handles, steering wheels, gear selectors, vehicle keys and seatbelts are just a few of the areas in your vehicle that are touched most frequently. Disinfect these surfaces regularly
- Hand hygiene: Wash your hands regularly with soap and water for 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available. Cleanse your hands each time you exit and reenter the vehicle for pitstops and fuel fill-ups.
- Keep your vehicle tidy: Limit the items you bring in and out of your vehicle when possible to avoid tracking germs into your vehicle. If you must bring items in and out of your vehicle, clean and disinfect those items and your vehicle more frequently. Remove garbage regularly and wash your hands after disposing of it.
