Chino residents are wearing gloves and masks out in public now in order to protect themselves from the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The virus has seen a recent spike in Chino as of April 9, 2020, with the cases rising to 11.

Some businesses are taking no chances with the novel coronavirus, and are either limiting the number of people who can go inside, or checking temperatures of their employees at the door. With 8 deaths in San Bernadino county at this time, these measures are reasonable steps to try and help the people living in Chino, California.

For businesses, rentals, and other facilities that have had someone confirmed positive in the building, many are taking no chances that the infection will spread. They are hiring COVID-19 remediation companies such as Eco Bear to disinfect their building.

What We Know About COVID-19

COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease that is spreading rapidly around the globe. Researchers are struggling to learn more about it and the information they learn is changing rapidly as more studies are done.

What we do know is that the symptoms are typically a fever, dry cough, and trouble breathing. About 20% of people will develop severe symptoms, and about 3.4% will die. Most people experience only mild symptoms, and some people don’t experience symptoms at all.

Infected people can shed the virus for several days before showing symptoms, and those who don’t experience any symptoms can still spread the virus. Not only can COVID-19 spread when an infected person coughs or sneezes, but it can also spread through touching surfaces contaminated by the virus, or even simply from their breath.

The current recommendations for staying safe during this pandemic is to frequently wash your hands, practice good social distancing, and avoid touching your face. Social distancing is more effective than masks and gloves, and is considered the best way to fight the virus.

How Mitigation Services Can Help Stop the Spread

Many people are feeling nervous because of just how quickly the virus is spreading. We all have loved ones in at-risk categories, such as the elderly or the immunocompromised to think about. With concerns about becoming infected simply by going to work, people are looking for ways to ensure they are as safe as possible.

COVID-19 cleanup services are a way to guarantee the safety of a building after it has been contaminated by the coronavirus. If an employee has tested positive for the virus, or a family is worried about a contaminated home infecting a beloved parent, eliminating the virus through a professional cleaning service is the best way to handle it.

Eco Bear is a mitigation service with experience in handling biohazards. They have worked in many challenging situations, such as crime scenes, suicides, and unattended deaths. They have also worked on many types of infectious disease cleanups, and have the tools and skills needed to eliminate all traces of the virus from a home or other building.
