Have you heard of the so called “5-second rule” for when food falls to the floor? (NOT true by the way). Have you seen the signs in restrooms indicating that all employees must wash their hands before returning to work?
Bacteria are everywhere and the concept of cleanliness should apply to anyone who encounters foreign materials, fecal matter or urine, or any potentially contaminated materials.
For your initial post, discuss which two rooms in your home or workplace that you believe are the most contaminated. Explain why you chose these two rooms and list at least two bacteria (Genus species) that are the common types found in those rooms.
For your reply post, respond to at least one of your peers about different methods that can be used to decontaminate these rooms to reduce or eliminate microorganisms.
“Expand on your peer’s ideas” needs more than 1 – 2 sentences for an acceptable reply.
If you refer to a website or article, be sure to cite it in APA format. This prevents plagiarism and allows your fellow students to review the cites and increase the class knowledge base.
Please make your initial post by midweek and respond to at least one other student’s post by the end of the week. Please check the Course Calendar for specific due dates.
