1. Wear a Mask
It should go without saying at this point, but in these times it’s absolutely crucial to wear a mask. The COVID virus spreads fastest through close person interactions, especially when people breathe on each other. By wearing a mask, each person will minimize the distance that their breath travels, so if everyone wears a mask in your facility you will greatly reduce the chances of spreading the virus.
2. Keep Everything Tidy
A cluttered space helps to encourage dirt, grime, and airborne pollutants to gather, which directly raises the chances of an employee becoming sick in your business. Try to persuade your workers to keep their work areas tidy to keep the nasty stuff away from work and to be more productive.
3. Disinfect Your Environment
Diseases and germs love surfaces that haven’t been cleaned in a long time, so they’ll feel right at home with a dirty desk. Show them you don’t want to get chummy by disinfecting the areas in your building on a regular basis. Make sure your employees do the part by keeping their tables clean as well!
4. Keep an Eye on Vulnerable Workers
Although COVID-19 is capable of attacking anyone of any age or condition, it’s shown a pattern of causing more harm to those who are already physically vulnerable. If you have workers with pre-existing conditions, who are pregnant, or are disabled, make sure to look after them and keep them safe in the midst of this pandemic.
