Impact of novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 in cleanroom operations

The novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 is causing problems globally. This includes cleanroom users. The virus can be passed in the air and it survives on surfaces for prolonged periods of time. While existing protective measures should minimise air risks (such as HEPA filters, air change rates, wearing masks and gloves) the surface risks, due to prolonged survival times, require careful selection of appropriate agents (primarily either alcoholic products at 61 to 71% concentration or hydrogen peroxide at 0.5% or higher).

In relation to this topic, Tim Sandle has written an article:
