Many around the world have been affected by the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. During these times, it is important to understand all aspects of office health and safety and be prepared to safeguard your staff and customers.
A new virus such as COVID-19 has more impact on our society because of the lack of formed immunities. These are antibodies that form from a previous infection, allowing you to fight the virus again if contracted. Because of the lack of immunities, COVID-19 can quickly spread from person to person.
Your office may be putting customers and employees at risk, especially if you do not have the right precautions or equipment in place. A small conversation between employee and customer could put you out of business, especially in these uncertain times.
Protect your business, employees, and customers by understanding the spread of COVID-19. Implementing equipment such as our plexiglass sneeze guards can help you achieve optimal office health and safety.
Understanding the Spread
Precautionary steps must be taken to keep those infected with COVID-19 isolated from the public. The ways in which this virus can spread include:
- Touching infected surfaces and then touching your mouth, eyes, or nose
Many can become infected quickly, reaching a large number of people within a matter of days.
Stopping the Spread: Office Health and Safety
The more knowledge we have about COVID-19, the easier it will be to stop the spread. Understanding your part can keep yourself and others safe. A few ways that you can help in the workplace or in public include:
- Washing your hands often
