Low & High Risk Areas

Biosecurity, in other words, excluding disease-causing organisms from a given environment, is the most effective form of protection against cross contamination and the spread of infection within a veterinary practice.The veterinary clinic can be split into two distinct areas requiring different levels of biosecurity. Low risk and high risk areas:


Low Risk Areas such as waiting rooms, floors, corridors and cupboard fronts must be cleaned and disinfected with a Virkon™ PROFESSIONAL disinfectant solution at least twice daily. Other areas, such as desks and walls, should be cleaned and disinfected at least weekly.


High Risk Areas such as operating and consulting rooms and tables, and any area where body fluids have been spilt, must be thoroughly cleaned and then disinfected using Virkon™ PROFESSIONAL broad spectrum virucidal disinfectant after each consultation.
