What can we do to best protect ourselves?
Whilst using SteriStik Antimicrobial will add protection to your surfaces and prevent the spread of germs between your customers, staff and visitors, we do also advise you to regularly clean your SteriStik covered surfaces with an antibacterial spray and a non-abrasive cloth. Regular and thorough hand washing, coupled with the use of sanitising products such as alcohol gels, whilst having SteriStik Antimicrobial applied to your surfaces is probably the best approach to minimising risk of bacterial infection. Current advice can be found on the websites of CDC (Centres for Disease Control), NHS, Public Health England and WHO (World Health organisation).
