Cleaning and Safety
Launch has increased the frequency of cleanings and is taking extra care to sanitize railings, doorknobs, handles, elevator buttons, restroom surfaces, counters, and tabletops at all locations.
Launch encourages all persons to frequently wash their hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and to use the alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not immediately available. As per the recommendations of the CDC, please avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth to prevent the transmission and spread of the virus.
We encourage all persons to stay home from work when sick and to return only after they’ve been fever-free without the aid of fever-reducing medication for at least 24 hours.
