Cleaning and disinfection campaign has begun in the Municipality of Lagoa 

This Monday, March 23, a special campaign to clean and disinfect the public spaces of the municipality of Lagoa began, which will last at least until the next month.

The Municipality of Lagoa has just purchased a biocidal product duly certified for disinfection of the public space which has already begun to be applied. It is a broad spectrum, ecological and guaranteed efficiency disinfectant, which follows the recommendations of the General Directorate of Health for the prevention of contagion and dissemination of COVID-19.

This special cleaning and disinfection campaign for the municipality’s public space is mainly aimed at landfill sites, and their user contact areas, such as handles and covers, in order to minimise the risk of potential sources of contamination. But in addition to these priorities, other public facilities and spaces, such as the streets and some urban furniture, will also be cleaned and disinfected.

The costs of this product and associated application services are EUR 18.400.00 (EUR eighteen thousand four hundred), plus VAT at the current legal rate. To this contracted service, the Municipality of Lagoa is adding other resources of its responsibility, and also some possible means kindly made available for this purpose, by an entrepreneur resident in the county.

The purchase of this disinfectant and spraying equipment was decided in accordance with the guidelines and recommendations for waste management in a pandemic situation COVID-19, issued by the competent authorities, within the framework of the state of National Emergency decreed in our country.

The Mayor of Lagoa, Luís Encarnação, has in the meantime admitted the possibility of extending the period for the application of this product, which has the characteristics of virucid, bactericide and fungicide, should this need arise.
