Reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission for guests
There are two main routes of transmission of the coronavirus that causes COVID-19: respiratory and contact. These enhanced cleaning and disinfection guidelines focus on minimizing transmission through contact, specifically on frequently touched automotive surfaces such as keys, exterior door handles, trunk latches, and vehicle interiors. While it is not currently known with certainty how long the coronavirus survives on surfaces, a recent study published by the National Institutes of Health suggests that SARS-CoV-2 (the coronavirus that causes COVID-19) can last up to two to three days on plastic and stainless steel. Therefore, to reduce transmission, We at Nikki Slingshot Rentals find it is vitally important that all frequently touched vehicle surfaces be properly cleaned and disinfected before and between trips.
