Janitors vs. Germs

19 Nov 2020 10:11 AM | IJCSA - (Administrator)

Springfield's custodians and cleaning service employees are just as much on the pandemic front lines as health care workers and emergency responders, but their work isn't as well-known because it often occurs after hours and when buildings are empty. Armed with gloves, masks, potent disinfectants and a literally healthy dose of caution, they are sent to areas where doing a good job might save someone's life.

Are they concerned for their own safety? Certainly. But their experience and training help them to mitigate the risk, and they are proud of the vital job that they do.

Dushun Hogan owns Cleaning General Janitorial Services Inc. of Springfield. He's been in business for five years and has four employees, one of whom tested positive for COVID, likely from a non-work-related source. The employee has since recovered and has resumed working.

Hogan said his greatest concern right now is the effect that the pandemic will have on the businesses that he cleans.
