Inventory your supplies. There are essential products you need to have in place, including PPE.
Assess your facility:
- Identify (make a list) of high-touch points like doorknobs, light switches, etc. Scrutinize and be detailed.
- Identify and eliminate any high-risk activities or spaces in order to reduce cross contamination. This could include touchless dispensers, auto door openers, replacing hand dryers with paper towels, easy access to hand sanitizer, etc.
- Rearrange workspaces and establish guides for maintaining 6’ space, directional changes, and other solutions to change behavior for safer interaction.
Review your current S.O.P. There are site specific guidelines that may be useful for reopening your facility.
Review proper disinfecting and cleaning procedures with your staff.
Establish new policy for use of PPE and how to use the different products.
Create a daily checklist for disinfecting high touch points at least 3 times a day.
Update and fill-in any missing pieces of your site-specific SOP. If you do not have one. Create one immediately.
Make sure you have response plans for future situations, such as pandemics and acts of nature. Your staff and administrators need to have clear guidelines and know what to expect in uncertain situations.
Aside from frequent communication with your staff, it is especially important to communicate with your tenants. This can take many forms:
- Dedicated Facebook Page
- Letters & Memos
