The Istitute carries out ordinary daily cleaning in particular in the areas in which food and drinks are prepared and administered as per the HACCP self-control plan. In addition to the normal daily activities of cleaning the rooms, an extraordinary plan is prepared for sanitizing the places differentiated by type of room.  Sanitization is carried out by using anti-viral products recommended by the Istituto Superiore di Sanità (ethanol at concentrations equal to 70%, or chlorine-based products at a concentration of 0.1% and 0.5%). Sanitization is not carried out by an external company but by an organized internal service, and for this, special registers are prepared on which all interventions are noted.

ACCOMMODATION: La sanificazione degli alloggi è svolta con cadenza quotidiana sulle superfici di cui al punto precedente, ad ogni cambio cliente invece, sono sanificate tutte le superfici dell’alloggio e degli arredi con accurata disinfezione degli accessori presenti. Si proceda anche al cambio biancheria con coprimaterassi, lenzuoli, copricuscini, coperte e quant’altro lavate a temperatura di  90°.

RESTAURANT KITCHEN AND FOOD COUNTER: The cleaning and disinfection of kitchen surfaces is carried out as often as required by the HACCP self-control plan. At the food counter, in addition to the sanitization required by the HACCP self-control plan, the front surfaces that can be touched by customers and the Plexiglas protection panels are sanitized after every 10 guests.

INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL TABLES: The tables must be cleaned and sanitized after each use, avoiding as much as possible reusable and non-disinfectable utensils, containers and tablecloths. Oil, vinegar, and various seasonings, will be served directly by the staff. Only the salt and pepper dispenser will be delivered to the guest, which will be sanitized before and after use by the service staff.

SHARED BATHROOM/TOILET SERVICES: For shared use of bathrooms and toilets, given their nature  in the Istitute, cleaning operations have been introduced and will  be carried out at least three times a day. In the toilets, a sanitizing product without the need for rinsing will be made available for  guests to use before each entrance.

In the case of a person with COVID-19 inside the institutes premises, the areas will be cleaned and sanitized according to the provisions of circular no. 5443 of 22 February 2020 of the Ministry of Health, including the ventilation. The ventilation and air conditioning systems, in relation to the filtering parts, will also be subject to sanitation before being switched on again. The sanitization of the filters will be performed at intervals of not over 4 weeks. Air conditioning systems, if technically possible, should totally exclude the air recirculation function. If this is not technically possible, measures for the exchange of natural air must be further strengthened or technology introduced that can guarantee an adequate healthiness of the air flow. In reference to the Buddha Hall meditation room, to benefit the air conditioning system, a filtering system has been installed  that eliminates germs, bacteria and viruses. Constant ventilation of all rooms is guaranteed, with particular reference to the bathrooms/toilets, changing rooms, dining hall, offices and all work areas with workers/guests. Where there are rooms without a window, the constant operation of the fans is guaranteed.
