Many communities and industries are going to feel the impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the coming weeks and months. Below are some tips for reducing the impact on your moving company and protecting at-risk communities.
Wash Your Hands
The CDC recommends washing your hands for at least 20 seconds. This is the most effective way to reduce the spread of respiratory illnesses such as coronavirus. Hand washing may not always be available on moves, some people are sending coolers filled with hot water out with their movers to encourage hand washing. Sanitizing is a good alternative but may not kill all types of germs. We are currently experiencing a shortage of hand sanitizer, but there are many recipes to make effective sanitizers at home.
Avoid High-risk Areas
Pay attention to news updates regarding possible cases in your area. Make sure to comply with all directives from your government officials with regards to maximum gathering sizes and hours of operation. You can check the number of cases in your state at the CDC website.
Keep an Eye on Symptoms
The most common symptoms according to the World Health Organization are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Anyone with a temperature above 100 degrees should stay home to prevent the spread of disease. Some of the symptoms may not present right away and having the symptoms does not neccessarily mean you have coronavirus, but it is always the best practice to send employees home who exhibit these symptoms.
