We have always used EPA approved cleaning and disinfection products and will continue to do so. We value and want to ensure optimum health for our patients, parents, families and our team. We will continue to disinfect all surfaces that are 'contact' surfaces and this has been and will continue to occur after every patient as this high standard of care is important and has always been of the highest value in our practice.
