After a pet had died from panleukopenia, how long until you can have another cat?

A kitten adopted from a shelter developed panleukopenia and died (his name Frodo). His bed, toys, litterbox were all thrown out. The hardwood and kitchen floors were bleached multiple times. The carpet has been shampooed twice. I'm getting conflicting reports on how long I must wait to adopt another cat. This virus is very contagious and deadly to kittens. If I adopt an adult cat, not a kitten, that is full vaccinated and who receives a booster, is it safe to bring him into my home? The kitten died almost two months ago. How long until it's safe?
