What To Do If A Coworker Has COVID?

While many firms have reverted to pre-pandemic or hybrid modes of operation, the COVID-19 virus and variations continue to pose a concern in a number of organizations. Employers must be vigilant for possible viral epidemics among personnel infected with the delta and omicron strains. Proactive cleaning helps reduce the threat of COVID-19 or seasonal flu cases, but a higher level of cleaning is vital after a positive exposure by an employee, client or visitor. Edomey | Vancouver Commercial Cleaning Services is prepared to assist you.

Workplace exposure to COVID-19? Here's what to do.

Act Immediately

When an employee or customer tests positive for COVID-19 or the flu and may have contaminated your workplace, time is critical. To begin, while maintaining the individual's anonymity, notify anybody who may have been exposed to be on the lookout for symptoms. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that you isolate any locations that were used by the sick individual until they can be cleaned and disinfected.

Assure that any in-house cleaning or maintenance staff members promote air circulation during the cleaning procedure by opening doors and windows or employing fans. They should use protective masks and gloves while cleaning and sanitizing the exposed area, beginning with the sick person's workstation and supplies. Utilize EPA-approved disinfection treatments, adhere to authorized dwell times, and vacuum with a HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filter device.

If you hire a professional commercial cleaning service, inform them immediately and arrange for a complete cleaning as soon as feasible. They should do the exact identical actions. Additionally, inquire about disinfection services from your industrial cleaner, which are more rigorous than ordinary cleaning. Inquire if they propose any further safeguards to safeguard your workplace.
