Sacramento faces renewed closures to indoor business operations as COVID-19 infections begin to rise across California.
As a result, all California restaurants, bars, breweries, wineries, theaters, places of entertainment, barbershops, some offices and other types of businesses have already closed their indoor operations as of July 15.
When it’s possible, however, outdoor operations are acceptable. Of course, businesses must continue to practice enhanced safety protocols, such as wearing face coverings and thoroughly sanitizing their facilities to minimize the threat of the disease.
The state provides industry-specific guidelines on relevant practices for COVID-19 cleaning and planning that can be put into action immediately. Risk assessments, training, control measures, physical distancing rules and disinfection protocols remain essential in the fight.
While some businesses are scaling back their operations, the need for safety and protection is as important as ever to keep staff out of harm’s way and to preserve the peace of mind of everyone who works and supports local businesses.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) gives clear guidance, as well, on how employees need to interact in the workplace and what cleaning standards should be met.
As infections rise, employers should increase the frequency of cleaning, especially surfaces commonly touched by employees and even third-party partners, such as delivery personnel with Postmates or Uber Eats.
To ensure the continuity of critical operations, the CDC also outlines how 16 sectors can remain safe. Federal, state, and local law enforcement, janitorial staff, hazardous waste material responders, and workers in food and agriculture, manufacturing, information technology, transportation, energy and government operations are some of the listed categories.
Along with prescreening employees (taking body temperatures), regular monitoring and other safety procedures such as social distancing, these workplaces must also do due diligence in sanitary practices.
Common areas, offices, restrooms, shared equipment, fixtures, doors are all areas that employers should be paying close attention to in an effort to protect workers and customers.
Chances are that many businesses have heightened their protocols in order to keep their facilities clean by regularly disinfecting high-traffic areas and surfaces that may be touched by multiple people as they carry on their day-to-day tasks.
But if you are a Sacramento business that needs to remain solely focused on day-to-day operations, you can hire a professional cleaning company like us that can reach every nook and cranny.
Some of the enhanced coronavirus disinfecting measures include a technique called fogging. In this manner, the disinfectant solution is applied by spray and enters hard-to-reach areas for a deeper COVID-19 cleaning.
COVID-19 cleaning services also include using a wet spray solution because once applied it will dry to maximize results.
The Environmental Protection Agency lists the appropriate products to use against SARS-CoV-2, which is the virus that causes infection. COVID-19 cleaning services that we use adhere to the most impactful products.
Most businesses across Sacramento and the state that remain open, either fully or partially, are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of their employees, partners, and customers. Together, we can help slow down the spread by following a wide range of precautions and ensuring the safest possible workplace.
