Safe job sites are a must in this pandemic. With new COVID variants appearing regularly and Flu season in full effect this holiday season, The Wellness Firm wants to help lower the risk of infection and spreading.

The risk of spreading other viruses is lower with the acceptance of social distancing practices and the use of masks at work. Good hand hygiene, continual use of masks, and the implementation of social distancing strategies go a long way in preventing the spread of all infections, keeping safe job sites.

The Wellness Firm believes the way to prevent spreading any virus is to make sure everyone cleans their workstations. Research has shown that viruses can survive on surfaces for up 28 days. It could be as easy as wiping down keyboards and desks with alcohol wipes every day or multiple times daily. To eliminate all viruses, sanitation companies can come on a weekly basis, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. This is especially useful if someone at work has a viral or bacterial infection.

Influenza season is well underway, but it’s not too late to get your flu shot. Influenza vaccines can be purchased nationwide. Flu shots were traditionally overlooked by younger, healthier individuals. However, it is now common for hospital workers to be required to get flu shots or to show that they are unable to (eg, egg allergy). It may be beneficial to offer flu shots to your employees and make them mandatory for the season. This could help reduce the chance of influenza outbreaks in your workplace.

It is crucial to quickly get influenza A/B and COVID-19 testing is done when you are dealing with an employee who becomes ill. The spread of the disease can be stopped by using quarantine measures. It is also possible to isolate employees from the office. Both COVID-19, as well as Flu A/B, can now be tested quickly. Each result can be received in as little as 15 minutes with a wholesale rapid antigen test.

The Wellness Firm can help you no matter where your business is or in what sector. What Are Some Other Services Available?
