Staying safe during this Coronavirus emergency
Fears are rising as Coronavirus continues to spread. We can help mitigate the spread of the virus, and keep our employees and families safe, by taking an active role in setting safeguards within our workplaces and communities. Infoclean is here to help.
What is Coronavirus?
Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a respiratory illness caused by a new virus. Symptoms range from a mild cough to pneumonia. Some people may recover easily, while others may get very sick very quickly. The virus can spread quite quickly from person to person. Good hygiene can prevent infection.
The Coronavirus is nothing new
Coronaviruses are a big group of viruses that cause illnesses such as the common cold or more recent diseases including SARS (severe acute respiratory syndrome) and MERS. Simply, COVID-19 is a new strain from this family that has not previously been identified in humans.
The viruses are named for the corona, or crown, of surface proteins that the virus uses to penetrate the cells of its host.
Know COVID–19s signs and symptoms
- Dry Cough
- Shortness of breath
If you have any of the above symptoms and have been in close contact with a person known to have COVID-19 or have recently travelled from an area with an ongoing spread of COVID-19, seek medical advice.
Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room. Tell them about your recent travel and your symptoms.
Keeping employees and families safe
High standards of cleaning
At infoclean, we’re committed to helping our communities during this scary time. Our high standards of cleaning ensure your employees stay safe, happy and healthy. We go above and beyond most regular cleaning services, sanitising communal and high traffic areas as part of our standard cleaning duties.
This includes the sanitisation of office handrails, microwaves, fridge doors, lift buttons, desks, meeting rooms, doors and door handles/ knobs, as well as light switches and alarm pads as part of our regular clean.
Additional cleaning services
For peace of mind or for certain industries, additional cleaning can be undertaken to help minimise risk.
We also offer day-cleaning, which would help reduce germ build up throughout the day as well as help keep employees’ peace of mind.
Some of our clients have also set up an ‘outbreak plan’ in case COVID-19 goes pandemic. This involves additional cleaning between worker shifts, allowing high traffic areas to be sanitised, ensuring health and safety for each shift’s employees.
As Coronavirus grows closer to becoming a pandemic, it’s vital we take an active role in preventing the spread of the virus. Infoclean continues to work together with customers, prospects and staff weekly to help prevent the spread of the virus, helping keep our workspaces and communities safe.
