HOW TO RETURN TO WORK CONFIDENTLY
Well, it's that time, whether we are ready or not, it is time to head back to the office and pick back up our lives to resemble some sibilance of normal. Returning to the office after this devastating pandemic can lead many to feel a slew of emotional anxieties and physical discomfort; all of which are completely reasonable. The ‘what ifs’ starts to add up in the minds of the worried and can have negative effects in a workplace even if there is no immediate threat of contracting the infamous Covid-19 virus itself. These are unprecedented times we are living in and it is important to remember we are all experiencing this together and we are all doing what we can to get by. With that said, it is critical to know your options both as an employee and an employer when returning back to the office.
The CDC has listed helpful cleaning options and disinfecting guidelines on their website for all the different sectors of industries that can be followed when returning back to work and opening doors back to the public: Cleaning And Disinfecting Your Facility. In the chance that a coworker becomes infected, there are vital steps that must be taken; immediately close off all areas that the infected person could have contaminated, Open outside doors and windows to increase ventilation, wait 24 hours before inviting a cleaning crew into vacuum and disinfect all surfaces, and then wait an additional 7 days before allowing others to return to the compromised area. These guidelines are helpful when treating a potential positive case of Covid-19 situation,, but at the end of the day it really comes down to an individual responsibility we each must take to know when to stay home. Truly, it is always better safe than sorry.
