Glen Cove (NY) Ambulances to be Cleaned Daily with COVID-19-killing Solution

According to a report from LIHerald.com, the city of Glen Cove, New York, will partner with Clinical Clean, a Bohemia-based cleaning service for emergency medical services (EMS) and fire departments, to stop the spread of potential infections. The company will conduct daily cleanings of Glen Cove’s EMS ambulances. 

Because human coronaviruses can remain active on surfaces such as glass, plastic, or metal plastic for up to nine days after exposure, Clinical Clean uses a cleaning solution approved by the Environmental Protection Agency. The application is safe for all surfaces and kills coronaviruses, the flu, and cold germs in about two minutes. The application can also treat hard-to-reach areas.

The initial cost of the service is $325, with a continuing monthly payment of $289 over the following 24 months. Glen Cove EMS has also received $29,434 in COVID-19 relief fund proceeds from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services as part of the CARES Act Provider Relief Act.
