Faculty/Staff Tech Tips

Don't forget to properly clean off your phone screen and other surfaces. Cell phones are one of those “high touch surfaces” that the CDC says can transmit the virus. According to public health directors Disa Cornish and Catherine Zeman, phones can be gently cleaned with disinfecting wet wipes. Don't use sprays or other products that could get liquid inside the phone. And don't forget the case. You should remove it from the phone, clean it and allow both to air dry before reassembling, said Zeman. For additional guidelines to learn how to protect yourself, read the CDC's Guidelines.
