According to ISSA, there is significant research demonstrating the novel coronavirus can survive on surfaces for days unless properly cleaned and disinfected. As a result, the combination of properly trained and certified cleaning personnel and products are critical in helping to prevent the further spread of this virus once businesses are permitted to reopen.
Yet, many businesses lack the expertise, products, or trained personnel to properly disinfect for coronavirus and other viruses, according to ISSA. The Clean Start tax credit would help businesses ensure they provide a safe and sanitary environment for their workers and customers by providing a tax credit for businesses to train their existing staff on proper disinfection techniques, hire a certified professional cleaning company, and/or buy necessary cleaning products and equipment.
“We thank our members and our partners in the business community for their strong support thus far for this campaign and for all they’re doing to combat the COVID-19 pandemic,” said John Nothdurft, ISSA Director of Government Affairs. “Please take 60 seconds to contact your congressional delegation, as well as US President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to request their support for the Clean Start: Back to Work Tax Credit as part of the next federal stimulus bill and encourage your customers, employees, and vendors to do so as well.”
