December 11th – US media quoted an official of the U.S. General Administration on the 10th that the White House will carry out comprehensive disinfection and cleaning before Biden’s arrival on January 20, 2021.
According to CNN, it is customary to allocate five hours for thorough cleaning when the White House welcomes a new first family, but this time due to the epidemic, more intensive cleaning will be carried out.
Although there is no specific implementation plan at present, the U.S. General Services Administration, which is responsible for this matter, will thoroughly “sterilize and clean” the surface of the 55,000 square feet, including details such as furniture, door handles, curtains, light switches, elevator buttons, etc.
CNN said that in November, there were at least two outbreaks of COVID-19 in the White House, one affecting the first family. After that, the General Administration signed a contract with a company to carry out regular disinfection and cleaning of indoors in the White House area.
