At the Monona Terrace Community and Convention Center
Monona Terrace staff have activated a response plan to guard against the spread of various flu viruses. The facility cleaning staff are sanitizing all common touchable surfaces with a strong germicidal solution daily (FYI - the cleaning solution is top quality and kills viruses). The building is LEED-Certified Gold (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design). Every one of the sinks has an automatic faucet and foaming soap dispenser for no-touch hand washing, and automatic paper towel dispensers for no-touch hand drying. Upon request, Monona Terrace staff will add bottles of hand-sanitizer. However, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) views washing hands with soap and water as the gold standard.
