As the full force of COVID-19 bears down on Carson, California, the city’s top officials are weighing the possibility of requiring all citizens to wear a mask in public. The ordinance would mean a $1,000 fine for anyone out in public who was not wearing one.

This comes after Carson has suffered 93 cases of COVID-19 as of April 9, 2020, one of the highest counts in the area despite its relatively modest size of about 100,000 people. The highly infectious disease causes respiratory illness which can lead to hospitalization, or in some cases even death.

Although measures like this are strict, the goal is to keep Carson as healthy as possible and to keep hospitals from being overwhelmed by limiting the spread of the virus. In this way, a COVID-19 cleaning company can be of assistance in helping to reduce the infection rate, by disinfecting surfaces that may also be contaminated by COVID-19.

How COVID-19 Spreads Throughout a Community

COVID-19 is spread through droplets exhaled when people cough, sneeze, or even simply breathe. People can spread the disease before exhibiting any symptoms and some people never exhibit symptoms at all. Because they don’t know they are sick, they are particularly dangerous because they may go about their business and spread the virus more than someone who knows they are ill.

Because COVID-19 is a new disease that appeared just a few months ago, no one has immunity to it yet. This means that people who are exposed to it are much more likely to get sick. If too many people get sick at one time, hospital systems can become overwhelmed.

This means regular hand washing, using hand sanitizer when soap and water are not available, and wearing masks to protect others.

If a building becomes contaminated by COVID-19, moving quickly to disinfect the building is one of the best ways to help limit the spread. A Carson COVID-19 cleaning company can move rapidly to disinfect the building, rendering it safe for continued use after an infected person has been there.
