Green Water Technologies | Water Safety And Covid-19

Green Water Technologies

The coronavirus is going to be in the news for a while. And many people have lots of unanswered questions. If you are looking for information about how this virus transmits via water, you’ve come to the right place. In the following FAQ, Green Water Technologies answers questions about Covid-19 and water.

Q: Can I get sick from drinking tap water?

Green Water Technologies: Currently, this particular virus has not been found in treated drinking water. It is believed that conventional treatment methods, including disinfection and filtration, remove and/or inactivate the novel coronavirus.

Q: Is the virus transmitted through the sewer system?

Green Water Technologies: That is a tough question to answer. The Covid-19 virus has been detected in untreated wastewater. However, in most circumstances, the general public never comes into contact with untreated water. Theoretically, it is possible that sewage workers may become exposed, however, standard safety precautions should be adequate to prevent any actual exposure.

Q: Is it safe to wash my hands if my area is under a boil water advisory?

Green Water Technologies: Yes. A boil water advisory deals with other water quality issues outside of the coronavirus. If your area is affected by some sort of contamination, tune in to your local news and follow the guidance provided by your local health department and officials. If possible, and if no soap and warm water are available, utilize an alcohol-based sanitizer to remove any residual viruses and germs.

Q: Is it safe to swim with the virus going around?

Green Water Technologies: Chlorine and bromide disinfectants do kill the virus. However, common sense precautions should always be followed when in public. If you are swimming in your own personal pool and lounging in your home hot tub, you should be more than safe.
