COVID-19 Health and Contact Information
With the Coronavirus pandemic occurring, it might be wise to err on the side of caution, using extra efforts in hygiene and keeping safe distances from your co-workers. Some of the suggestions to consider are:
ü Try to keep 6 feet away from co-workers, to avoid close physical contact. Respirators are sometimes effective when in personal space (2 to 4 ft.)
ü If you have a mild cough or sneeze, covering your mouth and nose with a Kleenex or paper towel would be a big plus, and responsible.
ü Wash your hands BEFORE and after you use the restroom, or handling food.
ü A hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol content is always a plus.
ü Avoid touching prime entry points such as your face, eyes, and nose.
ü Try to keep your break area clean by sanitizing before and after you are there. Ask your supervisor for Clorox type of wipes and latex gloves. If the supervisor can’t find any, ask a safety rep., or a steward if some can be found. Worse case, wet paper towels and liquid hand soap might help.
ü If you are sick, please call off, stay home, and contact your doctor as needed.
