One other thing we are doing. We are installing germicidal lights in the main lobby, conference room, break areas, etc. They do not come on when people are present, but they are very powerful. Used in hospital operating rooms. Come on when employees aren’t present, FDA approved, does kill COVID 19, SARS, etc. They are expensive ($2500/pc for smaller ones) but it is something that we are doing and getting those in next week. At least in the morning, we know that the areas are virus-free and just maintaining.
This is the company we use: www.purolighting.com

We were able to reach out to Cintas to get cleaning products, hand sanitizer, COVID 19 package, etc. You have to get setup as a customer there, but they are able to supply it to us.

When we run low, we have generated our own COVID-19 Sanitizer with the following instructions:

1. Wash the surface with hot soap and water solution (removes grime)
2. Dry (air or rags)
3. Spray with the bleach solution (1/3 cup bleach to 1 gallon water)
4. Let air dry (do not wipe)

Smaller amount:
- 4tsp to 1 qt water

Test on painted surfaces and metals. Can damage overtime with repeated cleaning

We have found that our local Sam's Club has done a terriffic job of stocking cleaning supplies (both residiental and commerical strength). Unlike Costco, regional grocery strores and Walmart to a lesser extent. Other companies I am in contact with across the sate have expressed the same sentiment about Sam's Club.
