Businesses large and small are reeling from the impacts of the COVID-19 outbreak, and many are struggling to even keep their doors open. Right now, the main priorities are keeping customers and employees safe, and preventing any further spread of the Coronavirus. At Quest, we understand your concerns and want to ensure that you not only stay safe but also your business stays open. here are the 3 essential steps to protect your office and prevent the spread of coronavirus, stopping COVID-19 in its tracks:
1. Implement COVID-19 Prevention Daily Cleaning
As customers and employees come and go, it is critical to keep your business clean. The most important surfaces to focus on are “high-touch, high-traffic” surfaces, such as:
- Light switches
- Anything people regularly put their hands on (timeclocks, refrigerator, coffee pots, etc.)
All of these surfaces should be wiped down at least once a day with CDC-approved, and EPA N-List products, and while using proper protective equipment:
- Protective masks
- Eye protection
In some cases, certain areas should be cleaned multiple times a day. For instance, the handles on an entrance door should be cleaned at least once an hour, every hour depending on foot traffic.
2. Post CDC Approved Documentation and Procedures
The Center For Disease Control (CDC) is a wealth of information about how to slow and eventually stop the person-to-person spread of COVID-19. Take the time to talk to your employees. Education is beyond important right now, and you need to make sure the information you’re giving your employees is correct. In addition to adhering to the recommended social distancing procedures, regularly washing your hands with soap and water and wearing cloth masks to cover your mouth and nose, we recommend leveraging the CDC full repository of posters and information sheets you can print out and distribute.
3. Hire Professional COVID-19 Decontamination Services, as needed
In the event that your business has a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 in any of your locations, the next step is a full, professional decontamination. This type of service is the only real way to ensure that your locations are safe. They include:
- ULV fogging machines for large areas
- Targeted handheld spraying units for smaller areas
- Hand wiping of all high-contact, high-traffic surfaces
- Storing, labeling, transporting and processing of the wastes
All of these services are performed by certified professionals, under CDC guidelines and regulations, and with CDC recommended and EPA approved cleaning agents.
