The coronavirus, also known as COVID-19, has been declared a worldwide pandemic. If it hasn’t affected you or your family yet, unfortunately, it might soon will.
Please wash your hands often. Disinfect surfaces that are touched frequently. Stay home if you are sick.
But what about the cloth diapers?
Coronavirus (Covid-19) is viral in nature. There are no special procedures required for laundry or cloth diapers to remove it. A good wash routine will do the trick.
The Center for Disease control also adds,
Launder items as appropriate in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If possible, launder items using the warmest appropriate water setting for the items and dry items completely. Dirty laundry from an ill person can be washed with other people’s items.“COVID-19: Resources for Households.” Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 6 Mar. 2020, www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/home/cleaning-disinfection.html.
This is at least one less thing that you need to worry about.

If you are reading this post for other issues such as anything bacterial or fungal (such as yeast) then cloth diapers would need to be disinfected. You can find the directions on how to disinfect for that here.
