Covid-19 Cleaning Protocols


Charter Cleanliness Best Practices

The following practices are recommended by Virgin Islands Professional Charter Association (VIPCA) in compliance with suggestions released by the Center of Disease Control, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the American Cleaning Institution, and the World Health Organization. By creating a standard of expected cleanliness, the charter industry can give guests peace of mind regarding preventive measures taken to protect the heath of themselves and their crew. VIPCA encourages all of its members to follow government standards and laws regarding COVID-19.

Effective Disinfectant Solutions:

When using a disinfectant or sanitizer on surfaces, contact time is important. Contact time is the amount of time the chemical needs to be left on surface to completely kill the microorganisms before wiping the chemical off. The times listed here are minimums.

Protect yourself while using disinfectants to clean surfaces and objects. Fumes may be harmful to breathe and chemicals may be harsh on skin. Wear masks and gloves when needed. Keep all disinfectant solutions out of reach from children.
