Staying Safe Returning to Work Amidst Coronavirus

While many people are working from home to keep themselves and their colleagues safe during the pandemic, some people do not have that advantage. As the reopening stages for the economy begin to reopen, many of us are now returning back to our desks and workplaces. Does the thought of returning to work make you question how sanitary and/or safe you are there? Well, rest assured - you are not alone.

While over the course of the last three months we have become more attentive of handwashing, it is also important to remember the importance of sanitizing frequently touched objects such as:

  • Keyboards
  • Microphones
  • Phones 
  • Tablets
  • Photocopiers
  • Printers
  • Work stations
  • Gathering spots
  • Washrooms
  • Door handles

In the face of the pandemic many companies are doing their part by implementing different disinfecting, sanitizing and cleaning protocols as they welcome you back to the workplace. It is beneficial for the safety of yourself and others that you follow protocol and do your part to enforce social distancing. Wear a mask when/if possible, wash your hands frequently, and try to limit touching your face and eyes. If we follow all these measures we will continue to combat this virus while easing the burden on the healthcare system that is a lifeline to our society.

See this blog post for more information on how to properly clean and disinfect surfaces.
