The point-of-sale system is the center of any retail, grocery, or restaurant setting. Many people each day will make purchases using a payment terminal, which means that touching the equipment is a regular part of daily operations.
This guidance provides recommendations on the cleaning and disinfection of rooms or areas occupied by those with suspected or with confirmed COVID-19. It is aimed at limiting the survival of SARS-CoV-2 in key environments. These recommendations will be updated if additional information becomes available.
These guidelines are focused on community, non-healthcare facilities such as schools, institutions of higher education, offices, daycare centers, businesses, and community centers that do, and do not, house persons overnight. These guidelines are not meant for cleaning staff in healthcare facilities or repatriation sites, households, or for others for whom specific guidance already exists.

Regular cleaning and sanitization are an essential part in keeping merchants and customers safe and will not impact the performance of your equipment
