A Message from our Company's President:
Dear Customers, Employees, and Industry Friends:
With the prevalent threat of a virus upon us it is vital for the health and well-being of all of us that we take the proper precautions and adhering to the requests being made by our nation's experts and leaders. Right now we need to exercise social distancing, and limit your exposure to others in order to slow down its spread. To our business owners and managers, seeking a professional cleaning company that can provide knowledgeable and effective disinfecting solutions to help reduce and/or eliminate potential and avoidable risks is recommended and highly encouraged. In summary, the most effective way to help protect ourselves from this potential virus is to continue to maintain a clean and properly disinfected working environment as well as inform all of those who we come into contact with on a regular basis as well as implement internal company procedures that all company personnel would be required to follow.
To summarize, here is what has transpired with the Corona virus since this outbreak began:
On December 31, 2019, the World Health Organization China Country Office was informed of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause detected in Wuhan City. By January 7, 2020, Chinese authorities identified a novel coronavirus that is a new strain not previously identified in humans. It causes illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome. Novel coronaviruses—such as MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV, and 2019-nCoV cause severe symptoms including fever, cough and shortness of breath that can lead to pneumonia and even death. Coronaviruses are typically spread through the air via coughing or sneezing and contact with an infected person or contaminated surfaces. The world is now well aware of this virus because it has quickly spread from person to person and can lead to widespread outbreaks when infected individuals travel to different countries.
I would advise our business owners and leaders that you strongly consider an ongoing disinfecting program for your place of business. Moreover, to effectively avoid the spread of this potentially harmful virus it is important that all businesses adopt an effective company procedure for protecting its employees and customers and that the steps to communicating these objectives begin immediately.
To help in our efforts, please relay the following helpful tips to all those you come into contact with regularly:
The World Health Organization recommends that we take the following steps and precautions:
Hand Hygiene. Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
Frequently cleaning hands by using alcohol-based hand rub with at least 60% alcohol.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
When coughing and sneezing, cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw tissue away immediately and wash hands
Avoid close contact with anyone who has a fever and cough and stay home when you are sick.
If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, see medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider.
When visiting live markets in areas, avoid direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals.
The consumption of raw or under-cooked animal products should be avoided. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.
Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a cleaning spray or wipe.
In addition, these are a few, less publicized tips for staying healthy by avoiding contaminated surfaces:
Push elevator buttons with your knuckles, not your fingers.
Hand sanitizing dispensers, faucets and soap dispensers are not automatic? Use the under-side of your wrist to pump or push to activate.
Open doors using a napkin or similar object, not directly with your bar hands.
Avoid using the electronic pen at checkouts. Carry your own pen and use the non-writing end to punch the keypad when providing your electronic signature.
Don't touch public transportation turnstiles.
Use disinfectant wipes on your keyboard and mouse.
Implement a temporary no "handshake" adherence within your company's internal virus-related policy.
Keep disinfectant wipes in your car and at your place of work. Wipe the gas pump before using it and sanitize your hands afterwards. Wash your hands when available. Effective cleaning and hand hygiene programs play a critical role in preventing the transmission of seasonal influenza, the common cold as well as the novel coronavirus.
We ask that you please stay safe and we look forward to assisting you and your firm while we weather this pandemic.
