MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – When in person classes resume following the COVID-19 pandemic, Bibb County students will have a clean place to learn and play.

And it’s all thanks to their community, working inside and out.

On the inside: operational staff, like janitors and custodians, are deep-cleaning and sanitizing school buildings. Employees are using germicides after cleaning, especially in dark places, on surfaces, and in high traffic areas. Anywhere germs lingerincluding flu and COVID-19are top priority.

Chief of Staff for Bibb County Schools Keith Simmons says his heart goes out to the county’s operational staff.

I can’t say enough about the commitment and level of service that our operational staff is providing,” Simmons said.

On the outside: The Window Guys Cleaning Service is disinfecting playgrounds free of charge.  Using a soapy disinfectant, the Macon-based business is cleaning playground equipment for the entire school district.

The business’ founder, Chris Belflower, says the free time caused by the COVID-19 pandemic was “the perfect opportunity to double down and do something positive for the community.

The job is slated to be completed by April 4the final day of the district’s spring break.

Governor Brian Kemp’s March 26 executive order closed Georgia’s public schools through at least Friday, April 24.
