Is the Pandemic over? Experts say no

So is Covid in The Workplace Is it still an issue?

Now into a third Pandemic year, we have not reached the end. More than one million people have died in the U.S. and many more millions around the world. The losses are almost incalculable. As a business owner, it is your responsibility to do what you can to keep your workplace clean and to help stop the spread of the virus. Knowledge and trust are two of the most powerful tools we have in fighting the Pandemic.

So, what do we know?

The virus is spread more easily in any situation in which people are in close proximity to one another for long periods of time. This definitely increases the risk of transmission. Indoor locations, especially settings where there is poor ventilation, are riskier than outdoor locations. Activities where more particles are expelled from the mouth, such as singing or breathing heavily during exercise, also increase the risk of transmission.

So, as a business owner what can you do to keep your employees, clients, and customers safe from the spread of the virus?

The most important and effective thing you can do is to devise a plan to maintain the cleanliness of your facility. Hire a professional company such as UpKeep Maintenance to maintain the cleanliness of your facility.
