Disinfecting Equipment

The COVID-19 crisis has forced media organizations to enforce strict methods in terms of handling and cleaning equipment. This virtual roundtable call offered EBU Members a platform to share their experiences in what disinfecting methods to apply.

Sharing practices

In this informal, one-hour round-table call EBU Members shared their ideas, experiences, questions, etc.

- How to disinfect professional equipment (cameras, keyboards, monitors, ...)?
- What cleaning methods are easy to apply?
- What use policies should be part of extensive cleaning protocols?
