Government offices

Government departments often have large numbers of employees and members of the public interacting with each other.

Germs can be spread through airborne means, direct contact (hands) and contaminated surfaces.

Surfaces that can become easily contaminated include couches, chairs, elevator buttons, courtesy phones, security desk equipment, doorknobs, desks, computers, kitchen areas, waiting areas, toilets, vending machines, etc.

Poor air filters, inadequate ventilation, and inadequate sanitising measures and cleaning protocols heighten the risks.
