COVID-19 in Your Business
The current Coronavirus that countries and communities are currently battling is easy to transmit. One of the means of transmission is by touching infected surfaces. If an employee or client with the virus comes into your building, the virus could be left on doorknobs, tabletops, elevator buttons, and anything else the person touched. The next person to touch that surface could then pick up the virus and become ill themselves and/or contribute to the spread of Coronavirus exposure.
Recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Individuals can and should take steps to avoid becoming sick. These steps are simple and effective:
- Wash hands frequently and for twenty seconds, using soap and water
- Wear a mask that covers both the nose and the mouth
- Stay home when feeling sick
- Use a tissue to cover the nose and mouth when sneezing or coughing
Most people aren’t at risk of becoming seriously ill, but the steps individuals take to reduce the spread of the virus can prevent unnecessary deaths.
Unseen Exposure Increases Numbers of Infected People
Part of the problem with this virus is that people may be asymptomatic carriers for up to two weeks before getting sick or may carry the virus without ever appearing sick. This means that your business could already have been exposed to the virus. For this reason, consistent Coronavirus cleanup must be a top priority. Without routine cleaning, you could inadvertently contribute to rising levels of Coronavirus exposure in your community.
