Prepare your facility for returning to work after COVID-19 shutdown
There is no doubt coronavirus is affecting us all. Schools, entertainment facilities, hotels, and businesses across the United States are adjusting, reducing, or even eliminating operations to follow social distancing recommendations and prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Your business may be feeling the economic hardships from these changes, and you—like most companies—are likely eager to get back to full operations. As you consider reopening business to full capacity once again, here are a few guidelines to help you best prepare.
Have a COVID-19 cleanup plan
Whether your facility had a known coronavirus contamination, a team member had COVID-19 exposure outside of work, or even without known contamination, you can provide peace of mind to your employees by cleaning and disinfecting your facility.
Consider your options in selecting a service to protect your team from contamination:
- Clean your building, hard and soft surfaces, laundry, machinery, and electronics on your own
- Sanitize your facility using a janitorial service
- Thoroughly decontaminate your facility using professionals trained in biological response
Provide cleaning stations
We recommend you provide disinfectants that meet EPA’s criteria for employees to sanitize workstations and frequently used materials between thorough professional decontamination services. Place approved cleaning materials in multiple cleaning stations near high-traffic areas throughout your building for easy access and frequent cleanings.
Communicate with your employees
Employees appreciate transparency, especially as it relates to their safety. Have a trusted business leader notify your team of the company’s COVID-19 cleanup plan, cleaning station locations, and best practices for preventing the spread of coronavirus and other infectious diseases.
Simple encouragements to avoid touching your eyes, wash your hands with soap and water regularly, and stay home when you are sick help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases like COVID-19.
