Janitronics Building Services, an active member of the ISSA, the worldwide cleaning industry association, recently recieved the following notice we wanted to share with you.
Throughout the pandemic, ISSA has kept a close eye on the latest updates and developments from public health agencies around the world to ensure we can effectively serve our members who are instrumental to protecting public health and safety.
On April 5, 2021, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) revised its guidelines related to cleaning and disinfecting against COVID-19. We would like to provide additional clarification around these updates and offer clarity on how ISSA and the Global Biorisk Advisory Council™ (GBAC) are responding.
The most pertinent updates from the CDC include:
• “Cleaning with products containing soap or detergent reduces germs on surfaces by removing contaminants and may also weaken or damage some of the virus particles, which decreases risk of infection from surfaces.”
• “In most cases, fogging, fumigation, and wide-area or electrostatic spraying is not recommended as a primary method of surface disinfection and has several safety risks to consider.”
We issued a press release on Friday, April 9, which offers clear and detailed information about the role that surface cleaning and disinfection, proven products and equipment, and proper training play in reducing exposure to pathogens.
We also developed a new Straight Talk! episode, featuring Patty Olinger, GBAC Executive Director; Dr. Paul Meechan, formerly with the CDC; and Michael Diamond, Executive Director of The Infection Prevention Strategy (TIPS), that discusses the latest CDC changes and provides further clarification.
Lastly, we have released a video highlighting the public health benefits tied to GBAC STAR™ Facility Accreditation to increase awareness of this important program. Watch it here.
Janitronics will continue to keep you updated with the most current information available. If you have any questions, please reach out to us directly.
In April of 2021, the US Center for Disease Control (CDC) issued new guidance related to cleaning of surfaces and the use of disinfectants. Janitronics has been following the best practices identified by the CDC since the beginning of the pandemic. We also have been an integral component of a Boston-based health security task force to provide guidance to our stakeholders. We continue to be in alignment with the CDC, where they note that washing hands and using sanitizer is a priority. The statement continues: "Cleaning and disinfecting surfaces can also reduce the risk of infection" in a building.
You can read about the new guidance at the CDC here. Key points are to clean and disinfect if:
A COVID-19 infected person is known to have been in the space
Low incidence of mask-wearing
Poor hand sanitation practices are observed
Space will be occupied by high-risk population (elderly, or pre-existing conditions)
We are in close communication with our clients to ensure we provide what they need for their building occupants. We have an array of technology and protocols to deploy, and the best trained staff to deliver cleaning services, so our clients' needs will be met. Janitronics continues to embrace the science and follow the best practices as defined by the CDC and other relevant parties. We are here for you during these trying times, and we are ready to help you.
Congratulations to Sebastian Tapia, a long-term on-site Manager at Janitronics Building Services, for earning his Fitwel Ambassador certification.

With our internal health taskforce and resources outside our organization, we continue to update our comprehensive janitorial response to these unprecedented times. This plan encompasses all aspects of janitorial operations, including cleaning, physical distancing, health screening, PPE, and effective health communication and now recommended protocols for our Life Science partners, guided by research and science to ensure the appropriate response.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Janitronics Building Services works hard to educate and outfit our employees appropriately. We have contracted a company to make face coverings for our workforce helping to protect them and our clients as recommended by Local, State and Federal leaders. We have provided educational and timely updates to keep our employees aware, following all new guidelines as soon as they come out. We also continue to use technology to provide ongoing communications with our Managers and On-Site teams.
This week, we decided to share our most recent communication with you.
Local and state governments across the country are instituting increasingly stringent restrictions on gathering to flatten the curve of the spread of COVID-19 throughout our communities. Janitronics Building Services continues to monitor the current reports and guidance from the CDC, WHO, and public health officials and implement their recommendations into our operations. With many of you instituting remote work policies within your organizations, we would like to provide updates on our continued operations in times of limited occupancy.
The current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak continues to evolve and the World Health Organization (WHO) recently characterized COVID-19 as a pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is closely monitoring this situation and is working with state and local public health partners to respond to this rapidly evolving public health threat. Janitronics Building Services COVID-19 Committee continues to monitor the current reports and guidance from public health officials and implement their recommendations into our operations.
Janitronics Building Services is following developments, especially here in Massachusetts, to stay ahead of this emerging public health situation. The MA Dept. of Public Health is providing daily updates, which includes corporate meetings and associated confirmed cases from late February. The MA Dept. of Public Health asserts, “The risk of COVID-19 to the general public in Massachusetts remains low at this time.”

Last night was the sixth Annual Building Impact NonGala. Building Impact is a nonprofit that supports other nonprofits with the goal of Strengthening Communities through Volunteering with Measurable Impact. This is done in three ways: Volunteering in Buildings, Volunteering in offices and through corporate days of service. It was originally founded by Kevin McCall and Paradigm Properties with 3 other founding partners, The Bulfinch Companies, National Development and The Davis Companies. Like any Nonprofit, Building Impact needed to come up with unique ways to raise money to work toward their mission. Six years ago, the NonGala concept was born; instead of people dressing up to come to a chicken dinner in a ballroom, Building Impact would mobilize the community by creating an event that supported their nonprofit partners through service projects done on site. The event also recognizes our partners in the building community and those who volunteer throughout the year.
As a member of the board of Building Impact, Dorrian volunteered to lead the efforts on the event the first year and then continued in that role for 5 years as the Host Committee Chair. During that time Building Impact raised over $300,000 and had over 1,500 volunteers. Dorrian decided last year would be her final year in that leadership role. At the event last night Building Impact surprised Dorrian with a recognition Award at the event for five years of service in this role.
Janitronics Building Services is happy to welcome two outstanding new buildings to our growing portfolio, 100 Federal Street, Boston, MA and Bay Colony Coprporate Center, Waltham, MA.

All this careful planning and additional staffing for tranisition day led to a seamless operation and happy new tenants.
