Covid-19 (Coronavirus) Tips
Covid-19, or more commonly, the Coronavirus has been the hottest topic in the past few weeks for obvious reasons. The Virus originated in China and spread rapidly, infecting thousands, and affecting millions, including facilities worldwide.
Spread hand sanitizers.
While you and your team are working so hard to keep your facility at the highest standards, large numbers of people cross by it every day. Make sure these people are offered the best means to protect themselves. Having hand sanitizers scattered across your facility and lobby will ultimately keep you and your tenants healthy.
Adapt yourself to the changing environment.
People are becoming increasingly accustomed to the new situation, and their awareness of hygiene rises. More and more paper towels and soap will be used in the near future. Make sure you have enough supply for the next few months and prepare for more frequent refills. Provide your facility with the correct equipment and ensure safety for your tenants and staff.
Pay attention to detail.
Door handles, elevator buttons, and handrails are exposed to constant contact with the public. Conclusive research proves the virus can be transmitted through inanimate objects, an extra cleaning round could always make you, your team, and your tenants feel safer.
You may or may not have been exposed to the virus yet, but in reality, no group of people has been proved to be immune to getting infected. We hope everyone stays healthy and that you will not have to deal with COVID-19, but you need to prepare for spontaneous changes and adjustments. We recommend having backup employees just in case anything goes wrong, and more importantly, opening your eyes and being responsible for one another.
Use your tenants.
Operational insights gathered from your engineers, security teams, or cleaning personnel can never compare to the amount of direct data shared by your tenants. During these days, encourage your tenants to report everything they see. This will keep you updated and as long as you keep pace with your tenants, you will know you are doing your best to prevent anomalies at your facility.
