The following procedures help to protect your employees, equipment, and community.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends cleaning surfaces, followed by disinfection, as a best practice for the prevention of Coronavirus and other viral respiratory illnesses in households and community settings.
CDC recommendations and general guidelines:
The CDC-recommended disinfectant is an alcohol solution consisting of 70% isopropyl alcohol and 30% water. Please follow the steps below to use the CDC recommended alcohol solution to clean high-touch, external surfaces on Getac products:
• Avoid Bleach solutions over 10% as it may damage some plastics. The CDC recommendation is about 2% bleach.
• Isopropyl Alcohol usually in a 70% Isopropyl Alcohol and 30% Water solution. It may also be marketed as rubbing alcohol.
• Wear disposable gloves made of latex (or nitrile gloves if you are latex-sensitive) when cleaning and disinfecting surfaces.
• Do NOT clean a notebook or tablet while it is powered on or plugged in.
• Remove cables, close all port covers & doors to prevent solution ingress.
• Use a clean cloth. Do not use materials, such as paper towels or toilet paper. The cloth should be moist, but not dripping wet.
• Although we carry a rating of IP65 on our rugged products, it’s never recommended to type or exercise the keyboard while wet to prevent compromising of the membrane underneath the key caps.
• Extra attention should be given to the screw holes, unflattened area, strips, and finger touch points. Unplugged cables should also be wiped down.
• Ensure surfaces have completely air-dried before turning the device on after cleaning. No moisture should be visible on the surfaces of the product before it is powered on.
• Clean hands after gloves are removed.
