We have added an extra cleaning and sanitizing of the entire production line zones 1-3 if an employee is found to be at risk of the virus and confirms a test positive.
Normally, we verify cleaning by zone-2 swabbing for dry ATP.
It was mentioned to use the E-coli for verification during the crisis. Can you clarify with respect to cleaning verification during the crisis- would Genus Listeria be acceptable in place of testing for E-coli for a cleaning verification to capture against a virus?
- We use Microsnap swabs and already have Listeria swabs in house with incubators. E-coli would be a different swab we'd need to purchase.
Also- immediately after the extra cleaning, prior to the sanitizing- is it still acceptable for verification using zone-2?
