TEAMS of cleaners have been hard at work keeping Frankston safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A team of 25 cleaners have walked over 6000 kilometres during the pandemic sanitising Frankston’s hand rails, ticketing machines, seating, bins, traffic light buttons and poles, bicycle stands, street furniture, and door handles.

The cleaners were recruited through the state government’s “Working for Victoria” program set up to help people who have lost their jobs as a result of the coronavirus crisis.

The mayor Sandra Mayer said “through this program, people have been able to go back to work, which does wonders for their mental and financial health and the local economy.”

“Additionally, it means highly frequented public spaces, such as the city centre, the waterfront, shopping strips, parks and playground equipment are being cleansed and disinfected about four times a day,” she said.

“This program complements council’s existing cleaning regime and ensures we are doing our best to prevent the spread of this virus in our community.”
