- Any surfaces that may have blood, stool, or body fluids on them

How to clean high-touch areas
The CDC advises using a household cleaning spray or wipe, and to follow the instructions.

It explained: “Labels contain instructions for safe and effective use of the cleaning product including precautions you should take when applying the product, such as wearing gloves and making sure you have good ventilation during use of the product.”

CDCではfrequently touched surfacesのように表現していますね。このhighは高頻度で触る場所という意味なのでしょう。

Clean

Practice routine cleaning of frequently touched surfaces.
  More frequent cleaning and disinfection may be required based on level of use.
  Surfaces and objects in public places, such as shopping carts and point of sale keypads should be cleaned and disinfected before each use.

High touch surfaces include:
Tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, sinks, etc.
