If anyone in your household shows signs of COVID-19, you should handle bed and bath linens as high-risk. Provide individual towels for each person and wash after three uses. Bedding and towels should be handled wearing gloves and laundered using the hottest settings for washer and dryer. Adding chlorine bleach to whites and color-safe lights ensures sanitization, as does drying at high heat. Don’t forget kitchen and hand towels – they should be laundered after a day’s use.
