- The computer mouse, which harbored nearly twice as many bacteria than desktops
- The bathroom paper towel handle
- Water fountain
- Bathroom sink faucets
- Library table and

In addition to using the Coverall Health-Based Cleaning System Program in school environments, our Coverall Franchisees work with you to educate students and parents, and reinforce the need to minimize germ transmission.
