Harvey House staff has increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting, focusing on the guests rooms and specifically all high-touch surfaces, including all common areas/ communal rooms, public restrooms, switches, handrails, tables, faucets, doorknobs, remote controls and shared keyboards. Increased frequency of cleaning and disinfecting with attention to these areas helps remove bacteria and viruses, including the novel coronavirus.
