From 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., they will remove trash, sweep, mop, and wipe down with cleaning supplies.

Part of the plan is to focus on high touch areas, like handrails, door buttons, and hanging straps.

The new Clean Team Initiative will also bring on 24 additional contract cleaners who will work daily shifts Monday through Friday.
